17Th Century 64-Gun British Ship

The Age of Exploration ended in the early seventeenth century.

By this time European vessels were sufficiently well built and their navigators competent enough
to travel to virtually anywhere on the planet by sea.

European naval exploration continued.

The east coast of Australia was first explored in 1770.

Arctic and Antarctic seas were not explored until the 19th century.

It took much longer for Europeans to explore the interiors of continents.

Africa's deep interior was not explored by Europeans until the mid to late 19th and early 20th
centuries, due to a lack of trade potential in this region, and to serious problems with contagious tropical diseases in sub-Saharan Africa
