Film Lesson:"Mountains of Moon"
There were some hardships that Europeans had while traveling through Africa, were traveling by foot. Another was that they were losing some supplies like food and water because of theifs. Also, they had to fight off the natives living in Africa. Some of them didn't survive the exploration. It was pretty strange that the world's largest river in the world, the Nile River, had a lake that was named Lake Victoria, after the British Queen. It was wierd because the europeans did not discover the lake, they just mapped it. They should not have had the right to name it. Europeans were far more advanced than African people. Europeans had better weapons. For example, in the movie, the Africans had never seen a gun. they were stunned. As a result of the high advancement of techology, Africa was easily conquered.
