The demons waited near a magnificent black palace, the black gates cut open with a strange rhythmic clicking. A powerful demonic aura burst out, as two predator vertical slits shined from the palace. A massive winged devil snake trailed out of the palace, its horrifying gaze landed on a particular demon. A horrid large fly, its compound eyes stared back at the devil snake. “Lord of Flies, where is she?” The serpent hissed releasing a powerful poison, the poison was red and seemed to create a terrifying fog.
With each of these tasks, foreshadowing is presented to the reader to show what will eventually lead to Beowulf’s demise. King Hrothgar compares and contrasts Beowulf with King Heremod, a bloodthirsty and powerful king that abused his powers for evil, saying that Beowulf will eventually become king of the Geats and should focus on being a good-hearted ruler over the Geats. Beowulf eventually does become king of the Geats and rules as a good-hearted king for fifty years in the end of the second act. The story of Sigemund was told after Beowulf had forced Grendel into a retreat. In this story, the mighty warrior Sigemund slayes a ferocious dragon, just like Beowulf would in the final act of the poem.

Although the military origination and strategies were simple they were extremely effective, each squad was made up of the four main tribes the Arbans, the Mingghans, the Tumerns and the Zunes. The Mongolian empire was famous for their horse archers, but their lanced armed Calvary were as equally skilled with their weapons as the archers. As the Mongols concurred more cities they recruited many other strong soldier types thus allowing them to become a force to be reckoned with. After concurring most of china they recruited the bombardier corps who were classified as master builders and Chinese engineers, thus giving them people who could build siege weapons.
Spears, called spere, ord, aesc, sceaft or gar, were a pretty common weapon. More often than not, they were over 2 metres and could have been used for warfare or hunting. It was encouraged that every freeman have a spear according to the Anglo-Saxon laws. Swords (sweord, secg, heoru, and ecg) were very hard to make and cost a lot of money, so not many people had them unless they were warriors or otherwise quite important. Helmets and chain-mail were worn by only the most important and richest Anglo-Saxon warriors.
Zaroff also had bloodhounds, but he only used them on the third day. Zaroff was a very experienced hunter as well. Rainsford also learned the value of
Gender roles in the Anglo-Saxon Era are very distant to each other. Men, who are usually the strong warriors, are of the dominant gender in the society.

After he wrote a new Bible, had a son with his third wife, and aided the Protestant Reformation, he died. His only son Edward took the throne at the age of nine and followed in his father’s footsteps. Aiding the Protestant Reform he allowed priests to marry and introduced the Book of Common Prayer. Unfortunately, he died at the age of 15 and Mary took the throne. She reversed the Protestant reform progress and threw out all previous reforms, executed or exiled many Protestants for heresy, and gave the pope his authority back.
‘The band! The speckled band!’ whispered Holmes” (page 17). The snake has the most important role in the story, but is mentioned the least. Since each of the animals represents something else, the baboon the exotic and unknown, the cheetah the danger of Dr. Roylott and the Speckled Band, the snake, death and justice, they give the story a second

Ghost Hamlet compared Claudius to a snake because of his lying and deceitfulness. Lying and deceitfulness play a role throughout the whole play. There are many times when spying and lying are used to get their way. Lying contributes to the reason of many characters death and secrets.

The Anglo Saxon era was justified with a very long term of push and pull of power among its early beginnings during 449 CE. Initially being a Germanic led country, the literature of the Dark Ages was very versed in song and migrated with the nomadic tribes that first accommodated within the area of the English Channel. During the preceding four centuries, the area was held as a province of the Roman empire, and never held a single leader with the external conflicts that were occurring between power nations and northern tribes during the time period. During Rome’s possession of Britain, their region remained an important colonial outpost. Even if it reserved great occupation in trade, the Romans would eventually let Britain remain as a utility

Ram horns adore his head, poison dripping off the sharp point, and wings sprouting from his body, with translucent blue glossy scales. Placed ornately, enveloping the skin like Greek armor. His double tail is a two- headed velvet purple snake, with a rattle snake 's tail. I feel like I was born to fight this creature. "Gods on high Olympus, I know Poseidon has sent this creature to destroy me.
To Whom It May Concern, April 25th, 1252 It is my professional opinion that Lancelot du Lac would be a grand choice for the position of head knight of Camelot. Not only does he have the necessities for the position he also has numerous expanding qualities that will be needed to truly lead the attack. Lancelot was a wonder to watch take on his colleagues while training at the guild. His finesse was remarkable at his age, not even truly being a man but still taking on the biggest of fighters. Lancelot always showed bravery, facing the biggest of foes, he was also the only one to volunteer to journey into a dangerous crypt in which the artifact we were looking for may or may not have been there.
Weapons made from stone, bone, and wood were presumed to have been kept in woven baskets and wrapped in a leather “wallet” for safety. The earliest Virginian’s lived in the lowlands of Shenandoah Valley and hunted smaller mammals and gathered wild fruit (“Paleo-Indians”). As the mountains became a less hostile environment over time, Paleo-Indians settled higher up in the Appalachians. The abundance of animals and natural resources drew the Paleo-Indians to Saltville where there was larger game (“Woodland Indians”). There is a vast amount of evidence that Paleo-Indians hunted large mammals such as Mammoths and Mastodons, but not as a primary food sources.
