The Columbian Exchange is one of the most important events to have happened in the modern history of the world. It marks one of the first exchanges of resources such as livestock, plants, diseases and technology between the two worlds. This led to the transformation of lives in the Old World and New World.
The Americas didn’t have wheels until the Europeans arrived. The Columbian Exchange also had great effect on biological diversity. The exchange impacted the social and cultural makeup of both sides. It lasted throughout the years of expansion and discovery.
