Document 4 can be analyzed to show that the common weapons of Assyrian soldiers included a shield and a spear. In addition, I infer that Document 1 and 2 are translated inscriptions found on ancient artifacts because rulers often recorded their conquests and military campaigns through inscriptions and various artwork. Therefore, Document 1 and 2 are primary sources because it is an artifact created by humans of that time. Since these four documents are primary sources, they are also reliable records of historical
The reason the medieval people used it was because it was cheap to use and make. It was a crescent shaped blade that was about five inches long and wide while the wooden handle was about three to four feet long. It was commonly made of materials around the village like iron, steel, bronze, and the wooden handle. It was very effective in attacking the enemy
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.
I do agree that it was all about location in the selection of ruler over those oppressed or over-run. So often we do not think of disease as a huge factor when it comes to who wins a war and who loses, but this book showed me that they were very effective, and powerful in destroying certain communities. Different armies would bring different disease with them from where they lived, spreading them to a new population. This method of warfare was far more effective than the guns were at times. Sometimes the guns would not work, or would be too hard to fire to protect oneself, but the germs knew no limits.
The dancing figure could have been made either all by hands, or partly mold-made. Many figurines of later period now had mold-made heads with handmade bodies (Cowgill). On the other hand, small figurines and decorative items made from precious greenstone would require skilled craftsman as well as greater working time and effort, since these were intricately made and well-crafted
Weaponry has been used for thousands of years, but there were many main improvements during the Colonial Times. Weaponry evolved from the basic weapon such as a bayonet to the highly destructive cannon. Although the levels of advancement varied their purpose was all the same, to kill. They were used and still are used to fight and the Colonial Times are a big contributor to how they are used today. During the Colonial Times weapons such as muskets, rifles, and tomahawks were used and improved for killing.
With Mukhtar’s work, power was not represented through wealth or grand tombs but by sculpting portraits and statues of strong people that helped lead Egypt to nationalism and embrace their culture and history. In his own way, Mukhtar sculpted the Pharaohs of his time, the people that would have the most power to him and lead in the most relatable and contemporary way to the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. The individuals that Mukhtar sculpted had a strong impact on Egypt’s people similar to the impact that Pharaohs did during ancient Egypt. Also, similar to ancient Egypt, the sculptures made by Mukhtar immortalized the individual and has made it so that their spirit will continue to live on like the sculptures of Pharaohs. The few portrait sculptures
He first discusses their armor and says, “there would have been little if any metallic armor.” He then when on to state that most likely the armor was made of bronze or leather. Joshua J. Mark contributes to this topic as he says they wore “breast plate, helmet and greaves.”5 On to the subject of weapons, Lazenby states, “Offensive weapons were probably predominantly-throwing spears and swords.”10 These spears were named ‘Dour’ and were roughly seven feet long.10 Dour spears were not only used for throwing but they were crucial for the success of the Phalanx
The Egyptian Middle Kingdom and Babylonia had many similarities related in geography. Despite this they also had numerous distinct differences. Fundamental similarities manifested as care for the people by the rulers which had recently developed in both societies. As the rulers were no longer concerned with only themselves, but the citizens as well. Both societies had military protection although Babylon organized and conquered the Fertile Crescent and later Egypt.
The way the Romans put these sources to use in many of ways. Romans used water power more than they did any other source of energy. Throughout the Roman empire energy use was a very efficient because they didn’t want to waste anything they didn’t have to. Some of the ways the romans used the water to help them convert energy were: to grind grains, cut wood, make music and to tell time. The Romans would use mills to grind their grains down into a form that they could work with.
But, the rifle-musket did have to go through the long process of reloading as well. Our weapons we use now are way better and easier to use. For one, we now have clips and magazines that make reloading easier. Second, our bullets already have gunpowder installed in them, so we do not have to carry gunpowder pouches with us during war. We also have guns that hold more than five or six rounds to shoot.
The results of this might not mean that the bow is the most accurate for you, but it might give you an idea. Our hypothesis is that the compound bow will be more accurate, because that is the bow almost every pro archer uses and they are pretty accurate. Holless Wilbur Allen is the creator of the compound bow. He made this by sawing off the limbs of a recurve bow and attaching pulleys (wheels) to the new ends. This let the user pull back more weight than you normally would.
The civilizations that flourished in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Palestine were located in river valleys or along the Mediterranean coast. These civilizations developed highly complex cultures that shared many common characteristics. Egyptians were a very advanced civilization due to their inventions and technology. The Old Kingdom, which first began in 2650 B.C as stated in the timeline of Document 1, was defined by its many great pyramids and monuments. From there on in the ancient Egyptian timeline, Egyptians surpassed other civilizations through their many remarkable advancements and achievements.
These civilizations had a good economy that is strong and strict help them maintain. The Aztec civilization government government was very successful. They had many different strict rules (legal codes) that controlled the way the aztecs did things. The king and prime minister had some very precise guidelines of what they had to wear, when they could wear it, and how long they could keep
Some civilizations developed steel because they had enough food and shelter, and therefore more free time to assign specialists to create steel. To develop it, they needed to have access to a stable environment , a semi-arid climate, and a surplus of iron. Spain was one of the civilizations to develop steel; they benefitted from it because they were able to make more efficient tools, which lead to power, and better quality of life. The Inca did not have steel because they lived in a tropical climate, and they didn 't have many domesticated animals or much flexibility in their daily lives. They also didn’t have very much iron, because they had gold.
