Explorer : All The Best Free Flash Games Relating To Explorer
Explorers are individuals who travel or search in a geographic area ( a country, a continent, the World!!) because they expect to discover tracks of an unknown people or a land offering a wealth of natural resources (oil, gold...). “Exploration” is a broad term that may also be used in a symbolic way to refer to the search, and the consequent discovery, of something that is not geographic. “Exploring one's body” means attempting to know more of one's sexuality; “exploring human nature” means trying to look for the characteristics of mankind.
Exploring is a typical human activity: we believe that some 8000 years ago, cavemen “made up” the first maps in painting caves' walls. Exploring a place and map-making was essential for them to master their environment. “Exploration” really peaked during “the age of discovery”, also known as “the age of exploration”. Starting in the 15th century, the age of discovery refers to a period in which many Europeans explored and searched the world for commercial purposes.

Looking to expand their business sphere and to “renew” their trade partners, these Europeans got themselves into a series of expeditions. They had a growing interest in trading with Asia, a continent with silk and spices. Trade routes had already been created, yet, most expeditions were journeys across the seas. Portuguese had great navigators and discovered many African areas. But life on board of a vessel was not so easy to explorers. They suffered from dehydration and hunger, diseases spread like a wildfire, and the seas could lay them in their grave at any moment.
The mere fact of exploring a place for conquest purposes may change the course of history: Christopher Columbus initially wanted to discover India when he landed in 1492, on board of La Nina, on the American continent. But his big mistake didn't change the fact that a “brand new world” had been discovered and was about to become a major land of opportunity. It didn't also change the fact that he brought syphilis into Europe...
To be an explorer, you also need to be an adventurer. You may risk your life, like James Cook who died in a fight with Hawaiians. Rumors say that Cook was actually eaten by cannibals...
