Inquiry welcomes back writer and historian LINCOLN PAINE to continue our discussion about his monumental history THE SEA AND CIVILIZATION: A MARITIME HISTORY OF THE WORLD. Tonight, we talk about Europe in the 15th and 16th Centuries, a time of exploration, conquest of the Indian Ocean and the “New World”, and changes in how countries thought about the ocean. This was the time of Prince Henry, Columbus, the spice trade and the escalation of the slave trade. If you love the sea and ships, don’t miss this show!
