'Through the Voyages of Columbus to the americas, a new world was discovered, but an old world was imposed.' Discuss.

What the hell am I supposed to do with that!!

I've no idea what sort of tangent they want me to go off on...

Anyone got any ideas?

Posted:I'd try and look at what Europe took from the "new world" (gold, cocoa, tobacco, potatoes, veggies... you get the idea!), and what it gave back (different governments and gods, diseases as you say, trade (= getting stuff for free and selling it expensively in Europe) etc). Given that it's "the americas", you can incorporate the north as well, as a place where people went to practice their religion, and that they then completely took over.
