KS3 British Colonies in Africa Resources

Following the loss of the Thirteen Colonies as dictated by the Treaty of Paris of 1783, Britain’s imperial priorities began to turn towards Asia, the Pacific and Africa. The massive industrial revolution experienced in the 19th century enabled Britain to establish footholds in these continents. 

The British Empire's beginnings can be traced to the Age of Exploration in the 15th century. Motivated by trade, exploration, and competition with other European powers, England established trading posts, colonies, and naval supremacy. Technological advancements and royal support enabled the English to expand into the New World, laying the foundation for the vast empire dominating global trade and politics for centuries.
