The Portuguese Empire, AD 1415 to 1668
Beginning with the capture of Ceuta in 1415, Portugal sparked a colonial enterprise that would transform the small medieval kingdom into a vast and wealthy empire. Dynamic leadership and religious zealotry fueled exploration and conquests in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. In doing so, the Portuguese revolutionized maritime travel, constructed elaborate trade monopolies, and developed the plantation system. This presentation explores Portugal’s triumphs and tribulations during the Age of Discovery.

History of Taos Archaeological Society Project
An effort is currently underway to build a historical timeline of TAS events and history! We need your help!
The Taos Archaeological Society has operated for 34 years. In that time, many documents have been produced. Unfortunately, TAS does not have a complete record of documents produced and distributed.
We are in need of documents/publications that date from September 1999 through February 2014.
You can help by contributing:
Past bulletins, meeting minutes, financial statements, member lists, and other communications.
Thank you for your continued support of the Taos Archaeological Society.
For more information, or to send documents, please contact Paul Mcguff at email@example.com
