EXPLORATION AND COLONIZATION 

Jean Cabot claims the Atlantic coast

 

Jean Cabot arrives in North America, on the Atlantic coast, which he claims on behalf of England. This discovery of Cabot aroused England's interest in the region, especially because of fishing, a region that we know today as Atlantic Canada.
