Fur Trade Geography
The story of North American exploration spans over 1000 years and involves a variety of European powers. It began with the Vikings in Newfoundland c.1000 A.D. and continued through European exploration and settlement from the beginning of the 17th century through the 19th century. These are but a few of the more well know individuals who traversed and formally charted land and waterways they ventured through.
Captured as well are the Posts and Forts of the Fur Trade. More frequently than not, the first men to experience a new area and the first nation culture that space, were not the explorers. They were the early company traders who would establish trading posts and forts in pursuit of wealth in the fur trade for their respective companies.
