How Did the Crusades Lead to the Age of Exploration?

Answer

The Crusades lead to the Age of Exploration when they began to expand trade to the Middle East. They not only brought home new foods, spices, and cloth. They brought home new ideas. The Europeans began to build ships, and that naturally led to wanting to voyage in discovery of new lands. The Age of Exploration was at first dominated by the Portuguese and the Spanish. It also saw the emergence of English explorers such as Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh, Sir Humphrey Gilbert, Sir John Hawkins, Sir Richard Grenville, and Sir Martin Frobisher.
