Julius Caesar was the first dictator of Rome, which left the people with a displeasing feeling of him. He came into rule, wanting to make life better for the people of Rome and give them better odds in the case of something bad happening. My prompt was to elaborate what led to Julius Caesar’s death and how it happened; also supposed to give a reason to why they thought he was killed. Julius Caesar died because of the way he tried to go about ruling Rome; the council did not agree with the way that Caesar was trying to rule and they disagreed with him on more than one occasion, because he had political experience before he became the dictator of Rome. To begin, Julius Caesar was the first dictator in Roman history,causing a lot of problems with the council and the people.
King Tut is not really known for his legacy as he became king at the game of 9 and died young at the age of 19. He is rather known for being the only king whose tomb and mummy were found intact with all the treasures buried with it, untouched by tomb robbers. In November 1922, English archaeologist Howard Carter found steps hidden in the debris in the Valley of the Kings. The steps led to an ancient sealed doorway bearing the name Tutankhamen. When Carter entered the tomb’s interior chambers, they found it virtually intact, with its treasures untouched after more than 3,000 years.
/ I killed where I must not kill!” (Oedipus The King. 1336.1342). The understanding of his identity is completely shattered when he learns the truth. With the sudden shift in his identity, the life he lived seems like a lie, and he becomes confused about his own identity. His loss of his coveted former identity as a good king, and the discovery of his new and shameful identity cause emotional
But despite the many decades of research since the city was discovered, not much is known about the long- lost Teotihuacan society. “Teotihuacan’s Lost Kings – Secrets of the Dead” is a film which documents an archeological station on a journey into a mysterious world, and exploration of the hidden tunnels beneath the ancient city of Teotihuacan, where scientists will finally find answers that explain who these mysterious people were. After decades of research, scientists have come to the conclusion that the key to understanding this civilization most mysterious sites may be all in the water. Discovered by accident, excavations at Teotihuacan led to finding multiple canals and cavities similar to pools beneath the city and under the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent, suggesting that the whole city was an aquatic sanctuary consecrated to worship of water. Ms. Ortega, an archaeologist with Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History, has concluded “Water is the true protagonist of Teotihuacan.
Also, many crimes were committed by those who were at administration of countries which Alexander had conquered. These crimes consisted of being acted improperly to Holy places such as temples and tombs. These governors were at their own master to govern their cities by taking advantage of the new conquests by Alexander because he had to undertake the expedition to India for a long time. They didn’t think that Alexander couldn’t return his home safely because he and his armies had to cope with difficult conditions in Gadrosia. Other important anecdote is worded as follows in the
In the speech, Antony is trying to sway the crowd into agreeing with the motives for murdering Caesar by using logos to justify his actions. “I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he thrice refuse: was this ambition?” This quote explains the thesis by showing that Antony used Caesar’s lack of ambition to indicate that Caesar wasn’t the ideal leader and, therefore, because of how quickly he was gaining power, he had to be stopped before his meager mindset
How did prehistoric builders without sophisticated tools or engineering knowledge construct Stonehenge? The question has baffled scholars and intrigued visitors to the famous site for centuries. Recently, researchers have introduced two new theories, adding to a long list of possible answers to one of history’s greatest riddles. For centuries, historians and archaeologists have puzzled over the many mysteries of Stonehenge, the prehistoric monument that Neolithic builders toiled over for an estimated 1,500 years. While many modern scholars now agree that it served as a sacred burial ground, they have yet to explain how a civilization without modern technology—or even the wheel—produced the mighty circle of upright megalithic stones.
Critics dismissed the gospel of Luke for years since there was no discovered evidence that referenced people as well as place existed . However, Sir William Ramsay, a famous historian and archaeologist, who first started out as a biblical skeptic and then converted to a Christian since he was so overwhelmed by the evidences that he found. Ramsay himself traveled to Asia for years to disprove Luke’s historicity but he returned with a completely different mind from what he intentioned in the beginning. Ramsay also said: “I began with a mind unfavorable to it...but more recently I found myself brought into contact with the Book of Acts as an authority for the topography, antiquities, and society of Asia Minor. It was gradually borne upon me that in various details the narrative showed marvelous truth...Luke is a historian of the first rank; not merely are his statements of fact trustworthy...this author should be placed along with the very greatest historians” ("Archaeological evidence," ).
As time went on it became clear that Emperor Heliogabalus was not fit to be Emperor of Rome. The first thing that went wrong was when a painting of Heliogabalus was sent to the senate house in Rome. This created a big problem because this was hung up right next to the statue of the goddess of Victoria, so any time a senator made an offer to Victoria they were also making offers to Heliogabalus. This caused revolts to breakout across Rome because of how upset some people were over this behavior. Another thing that the Emperor did that led to his downfall was his obsession with his religion and the Syrian sun god that he frequently worshipped.
As it seems he was a man of unique benevolence, generosity and forgivingness, yet had the intellect to make just and informed decisions. He acted as benefactor for the people in times of tragedy, but was his generosity to the people of Rome was not merely limited to these times. He won several battles and the Parthian war, and improved the integrity of Rome. However, it must be conceded that he did have one very significant fault as an emperor. Which was going by the convention of adopting a successor, and instead naming his own son, Commodus, as successor.
