    Colonialism is the policy of a country seeking to extend or retain its authority over other people or territories, [need quotation to verify] generally with the aim of economic dominance. In the process of colonisation, colonisers may impose their religion, economics, and other cultural practices on indigenous foreign administrators rule the territory in pursuit of their interests. In , Portugal invaded the city of Cueta in North Africa. Many historians considered this as the start of exploration. The Portuguese learned that Africa has many sources of gold. Prince Henry sent ship captains to exchanged goods such as gold and fish. At the back of this trade is the motive of searching for a new route to the East.
