The Islamic empire conquered parts of North Africa which helped spread the influence and wealth of Islam. In North Africa the Berber merchants were one of the major groups that traded with Sub-Saharan West Africa through the Trans-Saharan trade routes. The Berber merchants played an essential part in dispersing the Islam and its traditions into Sub-Saharan West Africa since they frequently used the Sahara to trade. When Islam made its way into Sub-Saharan West Africa, it was absorbed into their society but unlike in other societies, Islam merged with the existing animistic culture. A majority of the Sub-Saharan West African population didn’t convert to Islam but remained animistic.

Constantine and the Christians, the Jews of the Himyarite Dynasty in Arabia, the Manicheists who tried to court the Persians, and even the Zoroastrians who were keen to court their Iranian overlords, all sought to solidify their power, control, and government over regions of conquered peoples by using religion as an emulsifier of different tribal/cultural groups and a tool of state control. Each religion created empires of varying sizes and strength that were bound by the socio-political idea of religion and conversion of the conquered (especially in the case of Christianity). In this light, Islam did not seal the end of Late Antiquity, but rather continued one of its most famous features: conquest and expansion using religion as a justification. The Islamic conquests, so often viewed as the ending of Late Antique era, fit precisely into this mold. By conquering new peoples and forcing their conversion to Islam as a way to strengthen
There once was a little village located in a very dry and sandy place. A place in which one would believe is an uninhabitable, a place which resembled a desert. One might ask oneself how could a village spring from such nothingness, but this area was surprisingly heavily populated across many small villages, all started by a nomadic people who settled there when the conditions were favorable for life to come forth . But when the environment became harsh, the villagers did not leave so they adapted. The villagers from one would never see another from a different village because of the harsh environment surrounding them.

In the article, "Desperation at sea" by Rebecca Zissou discusses how refugee 's are having to flee their homes because of war. First, the refugee 's are all going from Syria, Gambia, Somalia, Eritrea, and Sudan to Libya because of war, disease, poverty, etc. Also they have to cross the harsh heat and terrain of the Sahara desert just to get to Libya. After that, the refugee 's have to pay people to get them over to Europe for safety but they could get a very bad deal from sometimes very untrustworthy people.

The Jamestown colonists didn’t bring enough food. This led to starvation which killed a lot of people. Some of the most important occupations that they needed to survive, they either only had one person to do the job or none. The drought was a very big problem too.

During the Age of Discovery, sailors’ lives on sea voyages were rough. A lot of things we’re discovered in this type of age including new land.

All though that the Age of Discovery was filled with lots of exploration and sailing it was also very dangerous and not for the faint of heart. The sailors lives we’re very poor because a lot of sailors have died to a disease called scurvy which is a lack of vitamin C. In the life of a sailor on the ship their diet consisted of bad food that had no vitamin C in them to help with the scurvy.
American independence was inevitable. One main objective for most immigrants when making the initial move to the western world (in ***** century) was to escape religious persecution and seek religious freedom. This initial search for religious freedom, in my opinion, was the beginning of the inevitable separation between Great Britain and the United States. This opportunity of individual expression was something that people in this time period had never experienced before, and led to the questioning of other aspects in their life that had previously been determined by the crown. While the new religious opportunities and emphasis on a more individualized lifestyle got the ball rolling towards American independence, Great Britain’s government
