The Comanche were never really a Indian or Tribal Nation, but they had great success in their early years working as groups or bands. But because a lack of a true unity for them in the beginning, despite their success, it became one of their greatest weaknesses.
The Middle Ages, also known as the Dark Ages, lasted from 500-1500 C.E. Around that time, the Western Roman Empire fell, causing everything to go out of order in Western Europe. People during that time were basically Romans, and those living in the Eastern Roman Empire - the Byzantine Empire - were also Romans. Hence, the culture in the Medieval Ages was similar to the culture in the Byzantine Empire. Cultures, throughout the world, build on one another - just like how the Roman Empire influenced the Medieval Culture. The Medieval culture influenced American culture today. Art, music, along with clothing are all major cultural aspects from the Middle Ages.
Between 1750 and 1914, Western Europe was industrializing. Russian Empire, after their failures in the Crimean War, decided that it was time for reform. As a result, Russia dramatically changed its labor system, such as emancipation of the serfs and industrialization. However, while there were these changes, Russian serfs still saw little change in their quality of life.
Followed by the first age of Imperialism in the 1600s when the Spanish conquistadors sailed the Atlantic Ocean, the second age of imperialism occurred. Imperialism is when a more powerful country takes over a less powerful country. The European rulers came together in 1885 at The Berlin Conference to discuss the new conquest of Africa. At this time, Africa was viewed as a piece of cake and each “slice” was distributed to each European country depending on its power.In the 1800s right after the Industrial Revolution, the Europeans were colonizing the African territory. As a result, Britain, France and the Netherlands had grown more powerful. The Industrial Revolution resulted in the creation of new machines and infrastructures. However, Europeans
1. In what ways did Charlemagne link religion and governing? Was he successful in doing so? Be sure to defend your point of view with clear facts!
There have been many changes throughout history, though the Neolithic revolution is often considered the most noteworthy. This era is when systematic agriculture was developed, fundamentally changing the way people lived. This was a major change in history: from hunting and gathering, to farming and domesticating animals. Occurring from around 10,000-3,000 BC, it changed the way history would be perceived.
The European expansion into the Western Hemisphere in the 15th and 16th centuries was a great advance for human civilization. Three reasons was an advancement of the human race is that it laid the groundwork for changed politics, new economy and created views on other cultures. This is important because the expansion of the Europeans into the Western hemisphere was one of a kind at the time. The expansion brought new people, culture and ideas and that and this laid the groundwork for a new government. Another reason this is an advancement is that it expanded the economic system this is important because it made more people rich. Socially, the expansion into the Western hemisphere made the settlers create concepts of superiority and views on other cultures. In conclusion, the European expansion in the 15th and 16th centuries had positive effects on the human race.
Tradition is the customs or beliefs that has been pass on to generation to generation. Native American have their own tradition such as when they trade, it meant a welcome gift or a way to gain relationship. However, the European trade and their material goods had a negative impact on their lives because they slowly lost their identity. While Native Americans was adapting to the Europeans’ homes, they did not noticed that they are started to becoming them. For example, in chapter 3, All Stuff of Life, Calloway stated that; “Archaeologists excavating eighteenth-century sites in the eastern united states often find it difficult to determine whether a settlement was Indian or European on the basis of the material unearthed.” This shows that Indians
(SUPPORTING POINT #4:) The crusaders bringing new ideas of technology in the Western culture and thriving from it, actually brings up my next main point.
The Middle ages started between 500 and 1500, which was split into different sections: the Early and High/Late Middle ages. The earliest part of the Middle Ages were also known as the ‘Dark Ages,’ which reigned between 476 to 1100 roughly. This started after the fall of the Roman Empire, which took most of Europe in a period of decline, dominantly Western Europe; including modern day England, France, Spain, Germany, Spain, Italy, and others. Following the collapse of the last empire, the economy and structure of government/society had collapse, causing many to fall back into small farming societies. On top of that, many invaders such as the Viking, Magyars, Germanic tribes, and Muslim invaders put them into a further primitive state. In the process, many of the technological advantages, education, communication, and trade was lost, not to mention the thousands of lives lost from
Military advancements throughout the Crusades helped Western Culture unite larger areas and unite all kings of Europe. The Pope and popular kings easily united the less important kings and rulers of Europe so that all of the Christian Europeans could battle together against the Muslims. Throughout the process of the Crusades, Christian theology developed as several people could more easily influence all Europeans while they were united. As the men of the Crusades fought for Jerusalem, they spread their religion and publicized European life to the Muslims and people in the Holy Land. However, through that process, the theology slightly changed as it spread to different regions. Also, since several kings and emperors declared Christianity
In Eurasia, political organization with official religions and bureaucracies were established by Renaissance times. Many empires that were set up around this time included the Ottoman Empire and Mongol Empire. In the Americas, there were only two main empires, the Incas and Aztecs with an established government; the other natives were organized into small tribes or bands. Communication is futile in an a successful society and in Eurasia, there were literate bureaucracies where they could communicate and understand each other, but in the Americas, writing was not the same and the natives instead used devices and a system that not everyone could use which made it difficult to communicate. In addition to political organization and writing, Eurasia and the Americas differed in their technology and inventions. Europeans had a huge advantage in their inventions and technology. They had guns, body armor, helmets, swords, lances, and daggers (all made out of solid steel or chain mail) and were able to operate machines such as the waterwheel, windmill, and geared wheels. They had wind, water, and animal power and their modes of transportation were by vehicles and sea where their trading and commerce could be done. Native Americans’ technology and inventions were limited to clubs and axes, slings, bows, arrows, and quilted armor (usually made of stone or wood) and were only later on introduced to horses (their main mode of transport) when the Europeans came. Because the Europeans had access to better technology and a more organized government, this gave them the advantage of being superior to the Native
The Scottish Enlightenment was very influential to early America in different aspects. After the American revolution there were multiple areas within the political sphere that were impacted by Scottish philosophers such as Francis Hutcheson and Adam Smith. Hutcheson’s beliefs are incorporated through his pupil, Thomas Jefferson. It is evident that ‘when Jefferson wrote on fundamental questions of moral philosophy, he seems clearly to have identified his views with Hutcheson’s moral-sense doctrine.’ Additionally Hutcheson and Jefferson had similar ideas about community that it cannot be forced because then the morality of wanting to care for one another is lost. Connections have been noted between the thinking of James Madison in The Federalist
Europe during the 1300s had many things affecting their culture and way of life. There was war waging all over Europe and disease spreading just as quickly as the fighting. The society of the time was beginning to change, which brought on rebellions of the people who wished to have more control over everything hat was happening. The 14th century brought on a lot of turmoil for those living in Europe at the time and it seems like it was too much happening at one for most of the people living during this time.
Civilizations formed over a vast period of time and encountered many technological changes which pushed progress forward. Of those changes, perhaps the Neolithic revolution was one of the most significant in progressing civilization in the direction to become modern societies. The Neolithic revolution was a wide-scale change in cultural lifestyles from hunting and gathering for sustainment of life, to a settling and farming way of life. This change involved the domestication of both plants and animals, the settlement of land areas, and the need to protect the land and the assets on the land, thus creating a future justification for organized warfare. The Neolithic revolution created a transition of cultural
