Sir Walter Ralegh
Discoveries had transformed many lives in hundreds of years. The Age of Exploration flourished between the early 15th century and continued to the 17th century which Europeans explored Africa, America, Asia, and Oceania. With Europeans expanded colonies and trades among themselves and the Native Americans, it produced the Columbian Exchange, which was a wide trade of plants, animals, foods, and even slaves. The Golden Age of Exploration also saw the emergence of English explorers such as Sir Francis Drake, Sir Humphrey Gilbert, Sir John Hawkins, and especially Sir Walter Ralegh who uncovered the Guiana and established the Virginia colony of Roanoke Island (Elizabethan).
