At the time, the English were the greatest naval power in Europe, but they arrived on the scene rather later The first to appear was William Dampier, captain of the HMS Roebuck, in 1699, after he had been granted a Royal Commission by King William III to explore the east coast of New Holland By then, the general global balance of power was shifting, and with the English gaining a solid foothold in India, their supremacy in the Indian Ocean trade zone began The Dutch, once predominant in the region, began slowly to lose ground, slipping out of contention as a major global trading power So too were the Portuguese, also once dominant in the region It was now just the French and the English who were facing one another down in a quest to dominate the world, but their imperial interests were focused mainly in India and the East Indies, as well as the Caribbean and the Americas By then the world was largely mapped, with just regions such as the Arctic Archipelago and the two poles remaining terra incognita A few gaps needed to be filled in here and there, but all of the essential details were known At the same time, a great deal of imperial energy was at play in Europe, particularly in Britain Britain stood at the cusp of global dominance thanks almost entirely to the Royal Navy, which emerged in the 17th and 18th centuries as an institution significantly than the sum of its parts With vast assets available even in peacetime, expeditions of science and explorations were launched in every direction This was done not only to claim ownership of the field of global exploration, but also to undercut the imperial ambitions of others, in particular the French In 1769, Captain James Cook s historic expedition in the region would lead to an English claim on Australia, but before he reached Australia, he sailed near New Zealand and spent weeks mapping part of New Zealand s coast Over the next 90 years, Cook s journey and his account would lay the basis for British activities in the region, and those activities would forge the modern history of New Zealand at a great cost The European Discovery of New Zealand The History and Legacy of Early Expeditions and British Settlements on New Zealand analyzes the expeditions that discovered New Zealand and the early settlements and conflicts waged there from 1650 1850 You will learn about the European settlement of New Zealand like never before.
