9781330023655: The Story of South Africa (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Story of South Africa

On a September day in the closing year of the fifteenth century there was wonderful news in Lisbon. In the river lay a ship, full of silken stuffs, spices, pearls, and gold, taken on board in the far-off Indies, and brought direct to Europe. Vasco da Gama, the commander of the expedition of which this ship formed part, had discovered an ocean highway from Europe to Hindostan, and shown how the merchants of Lisbon could trade direct with India and China without the intervention of the Moors.

It was a welcome victory for Europe in the long struggle between the Cross and the Crescent.
