This chapter explores the connections between global history and maritime history by discussing the variable factors present within each discipline. It discusses maritime Spain, the role of technological trade, and the expansion of trade as the basis of analysis, and deconstructs the term ‘globalisation’ and its many definitions in attempt to provide an accurate intersection between the two disciplines. It concludes that in order to open up new perspectives, global history should not be considered on a geographical scale, but rather one that encompasses comparisons, connection, and interactions within trade.
