History of Colonies











The history of colonialism is very long and detailed. This web site will give only a sample of all of it. For more informatinon, please vist my Links section which includes various resources.

Colonialism started with the Greeks and Romans, who colonized most of the islands in the Mediterranean Sea. They developed the theory that a garrison that included women who could work in fields and bear children might eventually become cabable of supporting and reproducing itself.

These sections show how the Roman theory was applied. The Age of Exploration from 1450-1700, European Merchant Empires from 1700-1815, Imperialism of Free Trade from 1815-1870, New Imperialism from 1870-1914, and Mandates & Trusts.
