The clock that they first invented was built upon, the calendar they created is used today, and their building techniques are still studied and applied. Its main characteristics were their strong religion, their architecture, a thriving economy, its modern educational structure, and its technology. These characteristics made Ancient Egypt part of the greatest ancient civilization of all time. The Ancient Egyptians were a magnificent race of
Superlative to the olden times, the primitive history of humanity comprises the invention of writing, approximately 5500 years ago somewhere between the Middle Paleolithic to the very beginning of the Bronze age. This invention enabled us for the first time to see our thoughts before us and lead us to the first revolution in the history of human communication – invention of hieroglyphs. Those hieroglyph were amended into symbols and syllabary gradually. Many of our letters have a long pictorial memoirs. For instance, letter A.
The team was thrilled to confirm not only the identity of the ancient culture existing on the island, but that the site specifically related to the story, because the ruins were of Knossos, the palace-city housing the labyrinth. After confirming that this was the palace of the legendary King Minos, Sir Arthur Evans named the civilization the “Minoans” in reference to the king. Further investigation of Knossos led the archeologists to discover that the Minoan culture boasted the presence of writing. In fact, the Minoans possessed the first instance of “Linear A” script in the world, found on clay tablets in the ruins of the palace store rooms. Most likely used exclusively for record keeping, the very existence of this script is significant because it was a missing link between the hieroglyphic language and Greek.
The Mesopotamian, Egyptian and Greek civilizations are some of the world’s oldest civilizations that thrived due to the influence and effort of various important characters. However, each of these civilizations had one key character without which the civilization would not have flourished as much at it did. For the Mesopotamian civilization, Hammurabi was an important character because he was the first person ever to create and write down a ‘Code Of Law’. In the Egyptian civilization, Osiris was one character who was very influential because he is the main reason the Egyptians believe in the afterlife. For the Greek civilization, Alexander was very significant because he was the one who spread the Greek culture around the world.
Although they were quit busy translating the known knowledge into Arabic, the Islamic civilization made its mark towards many aspects in the different life fields even there are words like Algebra and cipher comes from Arabic words. Al-Khwarizmi is a math scientist who invented to what it's called Algorithm which is taken of his name. he is one of the famous people who contributed in computing that he invented the algebra." Alongside the Babylonians and Indians, the Egyptians are largely responsible for the shape of mathematics as we know it. Their knowledge and techniques passed on to the Greeks, helping the Hellenes to develop their great store of mathematical knowledge.
In early mesopotamia, their culture had many characteristics that made the early societies really “work.” Their codes and rules were based off certain things that can tell you a lot about their culture and how they governed the place. Mesopotamia was the first place to house civilization in around 1800 BCE. There were two civilizations that had stayed in mesopotamia, the Akkadians from 1800 BCE, and the sumerians from around 2200 BCE. Both civilizations lived at different times but had very similar cultures. For example, family was very important to the early mesopotamians.
Abstract Digital Humanities has emerged as a new discipline at the intersection of humanities and computing and is still in the development phase. Historically, the discipline of Digital Humanities is said to have developed out of the discipline of humanities computing which simply involved using computers as a tool for modelling humanities data for our better understanding of it. However, the scope of Digital Humanities spans a wide variety of work areas ranging from curating the digital repertoire of primary texts, study of linguistic features, textual analysis and hypertext editing to cultural analysis, data mining, visualization and production of distributed knowledge. It is now a well-established fact that Digital Humanities depends to
It was the Egyptians who invented the very first alphabet in about 300 BC, which has been highly influenced for the origin of the English alphabet. In a comparison with the other nations it is envisaged that the history of the alphabet of Sri Lanka goes for years. It has been proved through a research conducted by the former commissioner of archeology Dr. Shiran Daraniyagala that there was a civilization comprised with literacy here in Sri Lanka. This fact was supported by the evidence in a piece of mud pot founded from an excavation in Anuradhapura Athugal Nuwara in which the word “ANURUDA” has been indicated in Aryan Prakrit language (Brahmi) letters somewhere in 500 BC. Those were quit similar to the ancient Indian Brahmi letters.
The role of computers in language teaching has changed significantly in the last 30 years. Previously, computers used in language teaching were limited to text, simple simulations and exercises such as gap-filling and multiple-choice drills. Technological and pedagogical advancements now allow us to more fully integrate computer technology into the language learning process. With cutting edge software and unlimited online access at our fingertips, we now have a myriad of opportunities to communicate in the target language, access textual and multimedia information, and interact for a global
Johnson was the first English lexicographer to use citations in this way, a method that greatly influenced the style of future dictionaries. He had scoured books stretching back to the 1500s, often quoting from those thought to be 'great works ' such as Milton or Shakespeare.” (The British Library, Literary quotations). In the eighteenth century, the language changed due to the time of the empire. Because of the people who came from foreign countries to England for commercial trading purposes, the language was affected from both foreign countries and England. “Johnson argued that as a country grows, so does the language.” (Seargeant and Swann, 2012, p.
