Educator Resources for Henry Hudson

He came... he saw... he named things after himself. Join Tim and Moby as they follow the career of Henry Hudson, the English explorer who spent years searching for the Northwest Passage. You'll learn about how the European desire for spices and silk drove the Age of Exploration, a search for alternative trading routes to the Silk Road. You'll see how Hudson relied on funding from private sources like the Dutch East India Company, as well as monarchs like King James I of England. Finally, you'll learn of his tragic fate, as he faced a mutiny in the New World. Hudson never found a passage through the Arctic, but he became the first person to navigate what is now the Hudson River in New York and Hudson Bay in Canada. Watch this movie and set sail on an epic journey of discovery!
