What were caravels and how were they better than what they replaced?

Caravels are ships! They used triangular sails that, unlike traditional square sails, allowed ships to sail against the wind. By replacing oars on the ship's side with rudders at the back of the ship, the Portuguese also greatly improved steering.


What could witches be convicted for?

Back in the dark days of the Witch Hunts it was claimed that people were being burned for being affiliated with the devil in their workings of magic. They were foul people amongst the villagers who sought out the help of the devil to harm and curse everyone.The reality of it is that people got burned at the stake for witchcraft, because people got ticked off at them. Yes, there were real witches who were burned which thus shortly ended the use of the Books of Shadows and put everything into verbal words to pass down to their children. However, most of the people were not witches.The people who were burned at the stake were simply innocent people that somebody didn't like. It was a simple matter of going around and calling someone a witch to get them torched and out of your life. So people claimed their neighbors, their in-laws, and the dude who over charged them for a hammer were witches just due to the fact they were mad.It was a dark and rather stupid age.
