European Empires and Trade c. 1770
This map shows the territories and trade routes of each colonial power (British, French, Dutch, Portuguese, and Spanish) from 1760 to 1770. Trade routes/flows are marked with the goods that traveled along these routes and with the value of trade per annum (in British pounds). Areas of colonial rivalry are also indicated; these are mostly found in the Americas.
