England also sent out explorers to find new land and wealth in the New World. In 1497, King Henry VI sent a captain by the name of John Cabot to attempt to find the New World that Columbus had recently discovered.
Cabot explored Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and New England, and claimed these lands for Great Britain. It would be nearly 100 years, however, before England was able to establish permanent colonies.

To raise public revenue, Emperor Vespasian--who built the Colosseum--was the first to introduce pay toilets in the city of Rome.
