They did beautiful monuments and pyramids and temples that till this day it is hard to explain how they did all of that by hand “Inca Empire for Kids”. Incas were intelligent they created plazas which made it a lot more helpful for their military to keep an eye on things. They also made sure that only people that lived in the Inca community were allowed to go in and out of the empire. Incas loved shiny things they would put most of the valuables hanging in their homes and or government offices. Only the best had the highest quality of
Upon arrival, Almagro and Pizarro found that modern day Peru was ruled by the mighty Inca Empire. The native Incas were a very wealthy people and possessed a lot of gold, something that the Spaniards desperately wanted. The civilization was quite large with a population of roughly ten million people. However, despite their large numbers, the Incas fell at the hands of the conquistadors over the course of three years. There were an extremely small number of natives left after Spain took over the empire. Soon after the land had been won, Diego de Almagro established Cuzco as the first capital of Peru. However, Pizarro desired to create a different capital, in a city known as Lima, which is the modern day capital of Peru. This created a spark of enmity between the two explorers and Pizarro’s two brothers who assisted in the exploration. The Pizarros and Almagro went their separate ways for a time, each working on building up their cities with citizens and government systems. Soon enough, Almagro was declared the governor of Cuzco, but not before King Charles I of Spain asked him to lead an expedition down to Chile in search of
Francisco Pizarro, born in 1475 in Spain, was a Spanish conquistador, or conqueror, who is credited with finding the Incan tribe in present-day Peru, and gaining a reputation for being a harsh ruler. Pizarro went on several voyages in his lifetime, but his most famous voyages were the ones involving the Incas. Like many other Spanish explorers, Pizarro wanted to find gold, and had learaned that an area in South America held vast amounts of gold. He led a voyage in 1531, in searach of this gold, but did not find any. A year later, Pizarro led a second voyage to find the gold he sought out for. With an army of 170 men, Pizarro stumbled upon the Incan civilization and brutally conquered the tribe, capturing their leader, Atahualpa, and taking
First, the Incas were both master builders and stone masons and they created and built many useful buildings and roads. For example, the site of Machu Picchu in Peru was constructed by the Incas and its “city buildings and terraces…
The first people in Florida had a huge impact on its history; these people are the Indians, they were here before Ponce de Leon “discovered” Florida. The Seminole Indians of Florida are a proud group of people; they even consider themselves the “Unconquered People.” The Seminole Indians started out as creek Indians from Georgia who migrated to Florida in the 1700s in search of good land to plant their crops. The Native Americans in Florida introduced corn, beans and squash to the area in which they grew in fertile red clay soils. This successful growth of food contributes to them becoming more of a settled people rather than having a nomadic lifestyle. They learned to build temple mounds, central plazas, homes and other public building with
Their environment affected their culture greatly.They would fish on the coast, and hunt in the mountains. Life in the Andes mountains may not have been the easiest thing in the world, but the Incas still managed to survive. They would build bridges from mountain peak to peak and over gorges for easier and shorter transportation. At around 1460 A.D. their empire split into 4 quarters, Collasuyu (also known as Qullasuyu), Antisuyu, Chinchaysuyu, Cuntinsuyu. Chinchaysuyu was the most populated and Qullasuyu was the largest by area. In the center of all of the Suyus, was Cusco.
It was 1532 when Pizzaro set foot on Incan territory. The Incas declared war upon the Spanish and a battle soon commenced. But the battle was one sided, the majority of the blood shed was from the Incas and not the Conquistadors but was instead from the Incas. The battle was in no way fair as the Spanish had horses, steel, guns, books and germs on their side. Understanding why the explorers had an advantage over the explored is crucial to understanding why todays developed countries are the way they are and have an economical advantage over some countries. So are you ready to learn the secret to the Europeans success?
As scientists believe, ancient culture, which gave rise to all the others, was the Olmec civilization. Therefore, all people of pre-Columbian America is characterized by several common features: hieroglyphic writing, illustrated books, calendar, human sacrifice, ritual ball game, belief in life after death, stepped pyramids. In this unit response, I would like to describe three main cultures in Mesoamerica: Olmec, Maya and Aztec.
Long ago, a mysterious people populated the American Southwest. Hundreds of miles south, another mysterious civilization thrived deep in overgrown jungles. Soon after a few generations, both tribes disappeared without warning. The Mayans and Anasazis lived in completely different areas. Far out in the arid dusty American desert, the ruins of the Anasazi rise from the landscape. Whereas, the Mayans lived in the Yucatan area of Mexico. When people visit, they will find buildings that have crumpled to the ground with dirt and treasures waiting to be discovered. The Mayans and Anasazi had some aspects that were different and some aspects that were the same such as class structure, trade, environment, mystery of disappearance and belief system.
One of the things that make the Inca different from the Aztecs is the location that the empire is located in .The Inca people were located in modern day Peru, the capital of Cusco. The place that they were located is nicknamed the “lost city”. The place was called the lost city because the city was never found by the Spanish invaders when they conquered the Inca in the 1500’s. By the early 1500’s the Inca people were located 200 miles north to

Chapter three of Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond is a story about how Francisco Pizarro, the Conquistador, brought the end to the Inca civilization with only two hundred men. Diamond uses real accounts from six of the 200 men to tell what happened. The story goes like: Francisco Pizarro by order of the King to travel across New World and conquer the lands and riches for his nation. They had gathered information about an Incan Empire and soon sent their sights on capturing the Incans. The Spanish Conquistadores tried to the Incan leader, Atahuallpa, to convert to Christianity but it failed so Pizarro then captured Atahullpa. The Spaniards then held the leader for ransom, collected a hefty reward, and then killed Atahullpa and conquered the Incan Empire. The Incan people outnumbered the Spanish men by 200 to about 80,000, yet they managed to capture the Incans leader. Chapter three is Diamond explaining how that is.

From the sacred city of Cuzco, the Quechuas consolidated a State that managed to synthesize the artistic, scientific and technological knowledge of its predecessors. Based on a concept of expansion of the State, the Tawantinsuyo (Inca Empire) collected those knowledge and empowered them. At present, some customs and traditions of the disappeared Inca civilization still prevail in Bolivia, Ecuador and
