Human history came about differently all over the world for the last 13,000 years because of simply of the environment in which each continent is located. Many people believe it is because of biological differences among the people around the world, but now we know that isn’t correct. The environment of each continent means different forms of language, diseases, political, religions, ect. They also have different species of animals and plants that one continent may not have come across.
The cultures presented in the lecture: Incas, Mayan and Aztec all had fascinating features, some alike and some different. All three cultures depend heavily on agriculture so they all invented different farming techniques that worked best for their geographic locations. The Inca located at the center of modern Peru where the empire hugged the slopes of the mountains in South America came up with terrace farming to maximize their land usage. Located on the Yucatan Peninsula, the Mayan were lucky enough to have flatter land where they can just burn down forests to plant crops. Out of the three cultures, I find the Aztec the most fascinating because they built floating gardens instead of having the garden on flat land. I 'm really curious of who
So first lets take about how the Inca, Aztecs, and Mayan are similar. The Inca, Aztecs, and Mayan are similar from they worshiped gods.As they worshiped god very religiously and did sacrifices with everyone as there are a bunch of ceremonies for there gods for rain crops food. They all used the same resources for building Adobe was one of the biggest resources for houses throughout the inca aztec and mayan empires. All empires ended in the 1500s Actually all the Inca, Aztec and Mayan empires ended in the 1500s once the spanish took over and kill them with diseases but the mayan did slowly disappear. All of some of the major dates that happened in an empire happened in 1400 ad As in the Inca empire The Inca, led by Manco Capac, migrate to the Cuzco Valley and establish their capital at Cuzco. The Aztec The Aztecs arrive in the Basin of Mexico.
The Aztec and Incan empires were destroyed in similar ways. While their empires were ruled differently and focused on different things their downfall was caused by even the same group of people. Their destruction wasn't peaceful and somewhat gory. Important factors of the fall of the Aztec and Incan empires were European expeditions, disease, and warfare.
The Aztec were had really advanced in their technology compared to other cultures and colonies in the Americas, but not as advanced as the Spanish. The Aztecs had developed many tools, weapons, armour, medicine and canoes. Their technology was so advanced that they were familiar with the wheel, but they only used them in toys. The Aztecs didn’t have any iron or steel like the Spanish; therefore they had to make weapons and tools out make blades for weapons. The Aztec were so advanced with their technology that they were able to develop drills with bones or reeds1.
Compare and contrast the conquests of Mexico (Aztecs) with that of the Inca. What led up to the conquest? The goals of the Conquistadores. The results.
For instance, warfare was a sacred ritual for the Aztecs. For the Incas, it was not. They only engaged in warfare when diplomacy and trade negotiations were no longer effective. Next, in warfare, the Aztecs used wooden swords. In contrast to the Aztecs, the Incas used palm wood clubs and other forms of weaponry. In terms of spirituality, the Aztecs focused on the interconnection between nature and human life. The Incas did not focus on the same. Last, the Aztec empire was divided into 371 city-states and 38 provinces. The Incan empire was divided into four “suyu,” and those were divided into provinces. Both the Aztec and Incan empires shared many like qualities within their civilizations, but they also differed in several ways including warfare engagement, religion, economic activity, and
In the 1500’s The Inca civilization ended in 1532 and their civilization started around 1438. The Aztec empire however, started in 1427 and ended in 1521. they both built amazing empires that are still recognized today. They believed in gods, they invented clever inventions, and created a lifestyle for the whole empire. In conclusion, these are the similarities between the Aztec and Inca empire.
As a young conquistador coming to a strange land that has a large pyramid with thousands of people surrounding it as they were chanting and yelling while looking toward the very top of the stairs that led to the top of the pyramid. You see people at the top and notice how they are cutting out the hearts of these human sacrifices and tossing them down the stairs. You stare in horror and notice what a terrible and cruel place you have come across. There was human sacrifice going on and gruesome wars over land that ultimately led to more and more death. But then you take another look around and see their agriculture and all the amazing irrigation systems they have set up and you 're completely shocked about how well their farming systems are. You come to the conclusion that there society/civilization has its flaws and its benefits and that its neither bad or good.
The rise of the Aztecs and Mongol Empire 's had a large impact on the areas they inhabited the religions they Ocuvite had been completely Concord and affected by the invasions of these empires both as Tech and Mongols were very similar in many aspects such as their goal to gain more power in Lynn even though the Aztecs the Mongol shared many similarities in their ward tactics they had many differences referring to religious and technological hierarchs aspect
The government of the Aztecs was similar to a monarchy where a King or Emperor was the primarily ruler
Their differences in religion made Maya, Aztec, and Inca have different calendars. The Mayans made a calendar with their knowledge of astronomy. The priest’s duty was to advise the correct days to plant, wage war or anything. The Mayan calendar was very advanced, it had a year of three hundred sixty five days. For the Incas we think their calendar based on the observations of the sun and moon to the stars. We have very little evidence on the Incas having a official calendar. The Aztec calendar is the calendar system that was used by the Aztecs and shared with the other people of central Mexico. These calendars for all three religions were an important part of their
the 16th century two massive empires ruled over Latin America. The Inca and the Aztec once ruled the area where both empires have many advantages on physical features which lead to the development of the empires. For the better advantage the Inca Empire would excel at the development of their empire better than the Aztec Empire.
At the start of the fifteenth century, large parts of the world were already connected in what is now called the Old World Web, but two smaller webs isolated from this large web existed as well (McNeill, and McNeill, 158). One of those was the American web, consisting of about 40 to 60 million people, of which in South America the Inca were the most dominant (McNeill, and McNeill, 160). What characterizes the time period of 1450-1800 BE for the Inca and the peoples of South America in general is the merging of the Old World Web and the American Web.
Ok first let’s start off with the Aztec civilization. The Aztec civilization began in a land called Teotihuacan, which was the biggest city in the in the Aztec civilization. There was a emperor that ruled all of land and normally would make rules. They were a great city and were expanding very swiftly. They ended when the Hernado Cort conquered it.
