Description

Set sail for the fabled Spice Islands or the legendary Cathay with the instrument of navigation that allowed sailers to cross vast oceans, and explorers to discover new continents. Through hundreds of years of technological innovation, sailers managed to chart the world. By inventing a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth's magnetic North, 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could now cross oceans. The compass truly was the implement that changed the Renaissance world, forever...

Brand New World

The Age of Sail allowed exploration to become possible; opening up the world for trade, travel and cultural exchange and commerce. Early explorers setting out didn't necessarily know where they were headed. Guided only by the stars of the night sky and a simple compass, they set out on their voyages of discovery and adventure.
