Colonization in Europe


Colonization in Europe

The colonization in Europe during the Classical period up until the Middle ages was a process of settlement of uninhabited lands by people of the neighboring regions.

Earlier colonization activities were made by the Moors (on the Iberian peninsula), Phoenecians (on the Mediterranean shores), and previous tribes going back to the Stone Age.

Later activities with similar aims include the Ottoman Empire conquest of European territories (and their gradual transformation into regular provinces) and the Lebensraum policy of Nazi Germany.
