Samenvatting Seminar paper from the year in the subject Engineering - Civil Engineering, grade: A, University of California, Berkeley , 15 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In the British architect John Tavenor wrote an article about the remains of medieval architecture in the Baltic area.
He concluded that the style in this area has been carried throughout the Middle Ages and further stated that the style is 'quite dissimilar to those of the rest of the continent' , meaning the Gothic style, that started to spread over Europe in the 11th and 12th centuries. He calls this architecture the 'Baltic style' and considers it to be a sub-style of the Gothic style. The Baltic area, as the heart of Northern Europe, was fractured into many kingdoms, principalities and lordships in the 1st millennium B.
So how was it possible that cultural and economic goods could spread in these disadvantageous circumstances, at a time when 'commerce by sea was little more than outrageous piracy and commerce by land was obliged to follow one or two beaten tracks across Europe in order to escape merciless exactions of the robber barons'? One answer could be the Hanseatic League, a protected network created by merchants, in order to protect their trade.
This alliance allowed trading guilds to manifest a trade monopoly within the entire Baltic area.

Since the League was not tied to any sphere of control but the merchants themselves, trades could be made easily within Northern Europe. Consequently the simultaneous appearance of the League and the Baltic style suggest that there is a possible correlation between the architecture in the Baltic area and its spread along the Hanseatic League's trading routes.
During this essay I am going to support this assumption by finding exemplifying similarities among buildings in the Hanse towns along the main trading routes. Toon meer Toon minder.

Chi ama i libri sceglie Kobo e inMondadori. Spice Islands by Ian Burnet. Choose Store. Or, get it for Kobo Super Points! The book tells of the many uses of these exotic spices and the history of their trade over a period of more than years. It describes how the Spice trade into Europe came to be dominated by Middle Eastern and Venetian merchants.
Much of the story is told through the lives of these historical characters, as well as Sir Francis Drake, Jan Pieterzoom Coen, Pierre Poive and others, lesser known but equally important.
The story revolves around the intense rivalry between the Sultans of Ternate and Tidore, their relationship with the Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and English who at different times occupied the Spice Islands. Skip this list.
