The ancient Greek world did not have a single, unified culture but rather a collection of different ones within the various poleis or ‘city states’. Two poleis whose cultures greatly varied were Athens and Sparta and this is reflected by the lives of women in these cultures who were influenced by them in different ways. As a result of this, there are many ways in which Spartan women were different from their Athenian counterparts. The main differences between Spartan and Athenian women stem from the fact that Athens was largely more conservative which, in turn, led to women playing a more traditional role. The type of education that Spartan women received made them different to their Athenian counterparts.
During the Tang dynasty in ancient China Empress Wu was a very controversial leader. There were many things that Wu did well to stabilize China when it was struggling. But, others thought that she was a terrible ruler for reasons such as her history as a concubine. Although many think that she was a terrible leader, the fact that she listened to others and governed with great efficiency outweigh them. Empress Wu was a successful leader because she stabilized the Tang dynasty when it was struggling.
Power for women was not much back in the 1600s. Women had no power at all in the government. Women had to find their power in other things, but women still found power. In the works, The Crucible by Arthur Miller and The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne demonstrated the control of women in the Puritan times. Even though in both The Crucible by Arthur Miller and The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, women have less control in the society than men, in The Crucible women have more say in the action of the society than the women in The Scarlet Letter.
THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA The Great Wall of China is more than 6,000 km long and runs from the Yalu River on the border with North Korea to the Gobi Desert. The Great Wall was built to protect the Han Chinese people from Manchurian and Mongolian invaders. Minor kings, called warlords, built individual walls to defend their territories during the period of the Warring States (403 BCE to 220 BCE). These individual walls were connected into one Great Wall by the first Chinese emperor, Qin Shi Huangdi, during the latter part of his reign (246 BCE to 208 BCE). The Great Wall continued to be repaired and extended over the next several centuries by different emperors.
Another highly believed thing in Shakesphere 's time was that marriage was more for money. Love, and regards for how the bride felt, were rarely included. Today, marriages are more out of attraction to one another rather than how much money a person 's family owns. In conclusion, Shakespheare 's time is very different than our own. While actors are praised, people sit
The Manchus is a group of people that’s sometimes called red-tasseled Manchus and The Manchus are descended from Jurchen people who earlier established the Jin dynasty in china.

The positions women hold are not as dominant as the men shown because it’s usually glossed over by the demanding roles of men. Although, women still were able to excel at their roles and impact the society in countless ways. These roles can be illustrated through Beowulf, when the society of the Danes like mothers, peace-weavers, and mistresses of the hall. As for Beowulf and Grendel women partook in roles that took a more negative effect, like
The Roman Colosseum is regarded as one of the greatest architectural feats of human history. Construction began in 72 AD under the rule of Vespasian. The building was assembled following the great fire that took place in Rome 8 years prior and a civil war that followed. Around 100,000 Jewish prisoners who fell into Roman slavery after the war built the Amphitheatre. The Flavian Amphitheatre, or Colosseum was the largest ever constructed and served as a way of giving back to the Ro
The Xia dynasty is important to the Chinese because the stories about the Xia dynasty told of kings working together. The Shang dynasty was also referred to as the Yin dynasty because Yin was the last Capital City in the Shang dynasty. During the Shang dynasty, China had more than just one capital city. The Shang dynasty had over 30 emperors starting with Tāng Shang who was military leader. The Shang dynasty was famous
In the Middle Ages, otherwise known as the Medieval times, women in society were often powerless, be it either a noblewoman or a peasant woman. Noblewoman, though, did have a somewhat better life than that of a peasant woman. A noblewoman would life in a great big castle, while a peasant woman would live in a miniscule, one room house that often housed a family along with many animals. Aside from this difference and a few others, there were quite a few similarities. These similarities included their duties as wives and mothers and the overall discrimination of them by men.
Perhaps the two most important civilizations, Rome and Han China both fell due to major similarities. At the same time, Rome and Han China fell due to distinct differences as well. Furthermore, the collapse of China and Rome had far more similarities rather than differences. During 200 and 600 BCE both classical civilizations suffered from outside invasions; growing from Central Asia. They were not as sweeping as earlier Indo-European growth but tested Rome and China severely.
But, of course, they do. Both the Chinese and Romans are guilty of this because they do not want to lose their power. This weakens the idea that Qin and Caesar are preferable rulers than their predecessors because they still have the same amount of power. The people still do not have a voice and that’s why their ideas and policies did not last forever. Eventually with the right amount of protesting, the people always get what they
The Great Wall of China: Did the Benefits Outweigh the Cost? The Qin and Han dynasty built the notorious wall we know today as The Great Wall of China. Although, The Great Wall of China has many benefits, but it does come with some costs. The benefits of the wall are great I do not think they out weigh the costs. For example, in document c, it states that they lost many people of their civilization.This means they would lose soldiers to protect the wall.That is not a good thing they need all those people to have an army.Now another cost that involved the wall was they would have less space and have not as much food which was code into document a.They would have to go out and risk there lives to find food and also go on a trek just for
The policies and institutions that integrated the Roman Empire were very similar to those of Han dynasty China. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in Robert L. Tignor/ et Worlds Together, Worlds Apart, 4th edition-Combined Volume. This chapter explores two of the major imperial powers to appear in world history: the Han dynasty and the Roman Empire. It discusses their origins: how each uses centralized authority to rule a large territorial empire, and how each incorporated the diverse peoples under its control. The chapter also deals with the empires’ major accomplishments, such as the construction of the Great Wall of China and the roads and aqueducts of Rome.
