The remains of a settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland, Canada, were discovered in 1960...

    Indigenous population loss following European contact directly led to Spanish explorations beyond the Caribbean islands they initially claimed and settled in the 1490s, since they required a labor force to both produce food and to mine gold. Slavery was not unknown in Indigenous societies. With the arrival of European colonists, enslavement of Indi...
