Virtual Museum Canada's Beyond the Map

Virtual Museum Canada's Beyond the Map | Washington State Studies for Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
The Pacific Northwest was well travelled by coastal indigenous peoples yet remained a blank area on European charts and maps until the late 18th century. Expeditions from Asia, Russia and Europe used modern navigational equipment to add to the scientific and geographical knowledge of the globe in the 1700s. By unrolling our charts of the Pacific Northwest, this web site looks at what inspired 'exploration' and 'discovery' and what those ideas mean.
S. Morgan MacDonald, MLIS's insight:

Features the following:

  • Why Explore?
  • Northwest Passage
  • Sea-Going Capitalism
  • The Explorers Ships & Technology
  • Historical Climate
  • Who Writes History
  • Daily Expedition Life
  • First Nations and New Arrivals

 

Don't miss the "Beyond the Map" interactive game!
