During the Elizabethan era, knights were claimed to be the very best and served the Queen. The knights were a particular class during the era. They were known for their valor and courage during battles.

The men, mostly “horse thieves, highway robbers, and evil-minded, lawless vagabonds” (Johansson, p.223), joined for the main reason that they wanted adventure. It got better as the Confederate army paid them and gave them food. The groups were lawless, and even “Confederate leaders found the partisan groups difficult to control” (Johansson, p.181), attacking supply lines and attacking farms and towns looking for food. The Guerrilla groups even clothed themselves in uniforms stole from fallen soldiers or murdered prisoners (Johansson, p.200). The attackers road horses, waiting in thick bushes for their victims, the springing out to attack them and then escape as quickly as they could.
Moors, Magyars, and Vikings all invaded. They all had different reasons for attacks; Moors wants to conquer, Magyars wanted wealth, and Vikings wanted food. They would damage small villages as they came across them and take villagers as slaves (Document 7). Europe was a target for invaders because they had no military support. When Vikings would invade they broke the defence wall and even took treasure as well as food (Document 8).
Military ranks The highest rank in the middle ages military is the king and queen. The King and the queen were the most powerful people in the kingdoms, their role was to keep the people of the kingdoms safe from any dangers or threats. Furthermore, they would also be in charge of making the laws. They were also in charge of keeping their land safe from invasion, also to control the military. However, being a king and queen was remarkably grueling, seeing that they were under a lot of stress about their land and people.

Ravagers, Pirates, pagans: These words sums up the Vikings for the people who lived in europe during medieval times. Although the Vikings are seen as barbaric fighters, they brought many important technological inventions and had many achievements that made a great impact on european culture. The Vikings had great achievements in technology on a wide range of things, one of which is their weapon crafting skills. They were able to craft swords, spears, javelins, battle-axes, knives, bows, arrows, shields, and body armor with intricate designs (Lamoureux). The Vikings were very skilled craftsman who are capable of creating a variety of high quality materials and goods.

Some of these, for example the flanged mace, were able to dent or even penetrate the armor that soldiers wore, even if it was thick. Others could only dent it but were still able to cause enough damaged to the wearer of the armor that the result would be a severe injury or death.

In the Hopi Myth, the creator’s only instructions were for them to respect their creator and to live in harmony with him. And like God’s instruction to Adam and Eve, these commands were breached. Egotism and self-superiority lead to division and suspicion being more widespread, and eventually only a few people from each of the four groups still remembered their creator. Once the people had forgotten their creator and became more egocentric, things fell apart. We also see a dangerous curiosity causing chaos in the Maori/Polynesian Myth.
During the 1800’s they stole large amounts of cattle from settlers in Texas, resulting in not only warfare with other plains indians but also with white Texan settlers. Warfare was common between the Comanche and other tribal groups due to their aggressive and warlike nature. Mounted, the Comanche were superior warriors compared to other plains tribes, and even European settlers. As moving targets the Comanche were difficult to hit, and if an enemy fired and had to reload, a Comanche could close rapidly with their lance or shoot them with multiple arrows without breaking out of a gallop. During warfare, the Comanche would kill all the males, but kidnap the women and children for later use.
Plains Indians went on raids and went to war for a number of reasons such as to steal horses, to get revenge or to destroy their enemies. They didn’t want to conquer land like the settlers did later on. They didn’t believe that people could own land. However there was a competition of the hunting grounds and living space.The Plains Indians wars
For my first argument, Vikings were just brutal raiders; they stole anything they could, including cattle, money, food and women. Ivar the boneless was one of the most Viking brutal raiders in that time. He was known for his punishments and torture methods. Ivar would tie men to trees and get multiple men to shoot arrows at the victim’s head until it exploded. The Viking ruler would also put his rivals to death by preforming blood eagles on them, cutting the back of the ribs from the spine making the ribs fling up and ripping the skin and making it look like the person look like they had wings.
They are experts at psychological warfare, using the night and natural primitive fears to their advantage. Specter 's hate clerics and their counterparts, the necromancers. They will strive to kill either one in their territory at all costs. Inter-species Observations: Animals panic if they are forced to go within 30 feet of a specter.

The societies of Central and South America prior to the arrival of Europeans were somewhat advanced because of government, religion, and economy. The somewhat advanced society kept many things in place to turn out the way it did with many ups and downs. A strong government that controlled and scared people. The many methods of farming of them survive for a decent time. These civilizations had a good economy that is strong and strict help them maintain.
