A Social World

When Captain James Cook and his crew landed in Tahiti on April 13, 1769, after sailing through the bitter weather of the South Pacific, a whole new world opened up not only to them but also to the many people in different parts of Europe who subsequently read accounts of their voyages. Cook himself represented the best of the British Royal Navy; he was a brilliant cartographer, a strong leader, and someone who was deeply respectful of other people and their cultures. Others on board included artists, botanists and one key ambassador of European culture, Joseph Banks. He was a man of aristocratic upbringing and with broad interests in both the arts and the sciences and it was his writings that provided Europe with a window on a new way of interpreting this and their own world.
