European Explorers: Discoverers or Conquerors?

While the question is provocative and forces each of us to examine our personal point of view, I think it is helpful to examine exploration with a critical lens and from multiple perspectives.


Why do people explore?
What would lead you to risk your life to explore a foreign land?
What can happen to a culture when it is exposed to another culture?
Is the exchange of culture always positive?
