CONCLUSION What exactly was covered in this paper? Well considering the opening question was “What makes pueblo houses so unique?” I would say that Pueblo Houses were covered. What makes them so unique, for starters they were made hundreds of years ago, second they were used by the same people for hundreds of years, and last but not least they look like modern day apartments. A Pueblo which is their proper name, so Pueblos lived in Pueblo’s, could hold a whole town or tribe. One thing that fascinates people is the fact the they befriended the spanish conquistadors unlike other tribes.
The Great Pyramid is located on the Giza near the modern city of Cairo and was built between 2580 to 2560 B.C for Pharaoh Khufu of the 4th dynasty. There was no evident of why pyramids were built nor how they were built. Scientists have been spending years for studying pyramids and they come up with so many theories to explain the purpose of building the pyramid, but the most accepted one is explaining that the pyramid was built as a tomb for the king, Pharaoh. In the ancient Egyptian society, Egyptian believed that there was the Afterlife and they also believed that when Pharaoh passed away, the king started his journey from the Underworld and had to go pass twelve gates to complete some quests in order to be emerged as Ra, the Sun God. Therefore, when the king passed away, his body went through a process of mummification and was placed inside the pyramids.
The Maya human progress was a Mesoamerican development created by the Maya people groups in a territory that includes southeastern Mexico, all of Guatemala and Belize, and the western segments of Honduras and El Salvador. The most punctual towns created before 2000 BC. The primary Maya urban areas created around 750 BC, and by 500 BC these urban communities had fantastic structural engineering.

As early as 24,000 BC, animal and human figurines were made from clay and other materials, then fired by kilns that were partially dug into the ground. It was first made in Pennsylvania in the mid 18th century by the Germans and still exists till today. Without American ceramics, the Ceramics world lack expression (American, 1). From another perspective, ceramics is viewed as unique in history to the world.
Teotihuacan 's impact is reflected most importantly, be that as it may, in the workmanship and construction modeling of Mesoamerica. The talud-tablero technique for façade development that had been created in Teotihuacan – the exchanging grouping of steeply slanting and edge like anticipating vertical dividers – set its blemish on construction modeling in numerous spots all through Mexico. Obviously it is difficult to figure out where Teotihuacan individuals themselves settled or where their social singularities were just imitated. Regardless, archeological lists bolster the hypothesis that the Teotihuacanos declared their impact in the Maya regions: in Kaminaljuyu they took power in the fourth century and in Tikal they even established their
Being Mexican American in The United States, I wanted to learn more about my culture and the impact Mexicans or Mexican Americans have had in the community or the communities surrounding me. Researching historical places, I stumble upon Olvera Street. Olvera Street is known to be the first pueblo in what today we call Los Angeles, California. When Olvera Street was founded in 1781, it was called El pueblo de Nuestra Señora Reina de Los Ángeles, which translate to “The Settlement of Our Queen of Los Angeles.” After googling Olvera Street and noticing that I live a couple of miles away, I decided to take a small trip. Arriving to Olvera Street brought many memories back to me, I had forgotten that my parents use to take my sibling and I to Olvera

David Farber is the author or editor of three additional books on the 1960s and both David Farber and Beth Bailey are professors of American history at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, which suggests that the authors are well-acquainted and knowledgeable on the topic of post-Sputnik American education. It is important to note that because of the date of publication, 2001, Farber and Bailey’s book is a secondary source; which indicates that it offers different perspective, analysis, and conclusion on the 1960s. However, because it is a book published in 2001, is it unknown whether or not the authors had first-hand experience with the topics they were writing about—which could affect their particular school of thought or
When Spanish ships landed in Mexico in 1519 the tremendous Aztec empire was at the top of its power from their capital Tenochtitlan the Aztecs controlled much of America ruling 15 million people. Aztec Palaces were as big and elaborate as those in Europe and their temples rivaled the Egyptian pyramids but within just 2 years the Aztec empire perished. The center of the Aztec Empire was the Valley of Mexico, where the capital of the Aztec Triple Alliance was built upon raised islets in Lake Texcoco. The exact origins of the Aztec people are uncertain, but they are believed to have begun as a northern tribe of hunter-gatherers whose name came from that of their homeland, Aztlan.

The World Trade Center was a government owned building until July 24th, 2001, when Silverstein acquired the leasehold of it. The deal was worth 3.2 billion dollars and one of the lease obligations was that he was required to rebuild the World Trade Center in case the buildings were demolished.

This is the reason why many speculate that he had prior knowledge to seize the opportunity and buy the first private lease on the World Trade Center. In the aftermath of 9/11, Silverstein put in a claim 7.1 billions but was awarded 4.5 billion in insurance
