The development of Mesoamerica and Andean South America had one major item in common and that was neither civilization had the strong political powers that ran previous empires such as the Roman. Other likenesses were the agriculture both empires flourished with crops of corn, potatoes and beans because these products thrived in a variety of soils and with different climates (Wallech, 2013). Many differences that these two civilizations differ from others is simply because of location and the rivers that separated them and the ability to move easily and share cultural beliefs and achievements, but no matter how much space is between civilizations there was always violence and the pattern of societies rising and falling ("Notes on Mesoamerican
Each tribe or empire of the Americas had their own unique technique or style that made them different. Regardless of their differences, they all were superior in their own ways and they each made a customized mark on history. The following paper will be summarizing things from each tribe or empire. For example, government or religion. There were four tribes/empires that made up the tribes of the Americas. There were the North American tribes, the Aztecs, the Mayas, and the Incas.
Over the course of the time period 1492 to 1750, Europeans exerted increasing economic dominance over the Americas and Africa which caused and even led to many social changes within the Atlantic world. It opened up new and old worlds to a world of growing interdependence as well as connectivity.
The Columbian Exchange between the new world and the old world significantly change people’s lives. After 1492, Europeans brought in horses to America which changes the nomadic Native American groups’ living from riding on buffalos to horses. This interchange also change the diet of the rest of the world with foods such as corns (maize), potatoes which are major diet for European nowadays. Besides all the animals from old world to the new world, Spanish also brought in the diseases that Native Americans were not immune of, such as smallpox which led to a large amount of Native Americans’ deaths.
East and West Africa from 1000 to 1500 CE had profound differences in forms of government, with West Africa being kingdom based, and East Africa city-state based. The conversion of Eastern and Western African ruling elites compacted trading between themselves and Islamic traders from Mesopotamia, China, India, and as far away as Oceania. The relatively stable political environment from 1000-1500 CE in Sub-Saharan Africa attracted displaced peoples from the Abbasid empire in Northern Africa, with West Africa utilizing Trans-Saharan trade, and East Africa utilizing mariner trade routes. The East and West developed in clearly different ways, but paralleled each other in a way in which the political, social, and economic environments facilitated stable trade in the region, as well as a distinct blend between Islamic culture and African tradition.

Although they bear some superficial similarities, the differences between life in Africa and that of America is clear. Firstly, I would like to start with the weather. There are only two seasons in Africa; the rainy season and the dry season. The rainy season is generally the time of the year when the rain brings new life in the wilderness areas of Africa and bringing forth new growth. It is sometimes refer to as the season of non-travel because the roads become risky for travel purposes. During the dry season much of the surface water dries and the animal have to find source of unceasing water. On the other hand, there are four seasons in America; autumn (fall), winter, Spring and Summer. During the spring it is sometimes warm and at some point chilly. In the summer it is always hot and sunny.
In the 1800's Europeans controlled a very small portion of Africa because of many reasons. The powerful African armies were able to keep Europeans out of Africa for over 400 years because it was almost impossible for Europeans to travel to the interior parts of Africa. Disease was spreading through Africa which slowed down European control. Rivers were another factor why Europeans didn't control much of Africa. They couldn't find their way around the African rivers because of the rapids, cataracts, and changing flows. There were also over 1,000 languages spoken in Africa and they had many ethnic groups and villages that were spread out through large empires.
Throughout time civilizations have risen and collapsed. Some were conquered while others simply disappeared. The Egyptian civilization thrived near the Nile River from 3000 B.C. and was later conquered by the Persian Empire around 525 B.C. In the other hand, the Mayan civilization developed in Yucatan Peninsula around 200 B.C., and mysterious disappeared around 900 A.D. However, these two cultures share many factors in common such as developing calendars and building pyramids. Even though civilizations developed in different time periods, they can still have many factors in common such as environment, language, and architecture.
Africa is known as the origin of the human race. Since that is the case, Africa has had the most opportunities to impress the modern world. Africa has done just that. Africa had three major kingdoms, each of which were major successes. Throughout history, Africa’s kingdoms have utilized their natural resources to become some of the most prosperous kingdoms the world has ever seen. Also, the rulers of said kingdoms have used no nonsense policies, both domestic and foreign, to decrease crime rates and peacefully trade. And, lastly, Africa’s natural geography has helped the African people be some of the most successful. Whether it’s the desert or the densely vegetated areas, Africa’s geography has helped it’s people. Before the arrival of the
During 600 BCE and 600 CE, many countries was going through a drastic change. When analyzing early civilizations, it’s evident there is similarities and differences. The Middle East, China, and Africa were among few countries that advanced during this aeon. All of these empires within the countries have risen and fallen, developing these civilizations to what we know of today.
The Phoenicians and Hebrews both played a big part in shaping the development of world history. First off, the Phoenicians were the ones who developed the Phonetic alphabet; the same model of alphabet that we still use to this day. Not only was it used for English, but other languages adopted it as well. The Greeks modified the Phoenicians alphabet for their language, the Romans based off of the Greeks, and our English is the same script that the Romans used. They also introduced the growing of grapes to many new places in the Mediterranean, which became a large part of the culture there. The Phoenicians were the ones who developed the prosperous commercial centers of Tyre, Sidon, and Byblos, which are essential trading
Some of the earliest humans lived in Africa. Though time, Africans have developed their way of living and has established their own successes, such as city-states and empires. Even though there is only a little knowledge of the early civilizations in Africa, the achievements of the African empires, kingdoms, and cities before the arrival of the Europeans brought both East and West Africa to prosper, due to its geography, culture, and successful trade. Like all ancient civilizations that continued to develop, Africa has grown to survive and move forward.
According to Document 1, the Kingdom of Aksum peaked its existence in Eastern Africa during 325 and 360, and became an important international trade route. Unlike many other kingdoms,
This empire is located in modern day Ethiopia, Africa. Axum had two different climatic and topographical regions. The main city’s port was on the Red Sea and was called Adulis. There is was hot all the time and had little rainfall with scrubby vegetation.As you go further inland you would find plateaus and rainy days. These plateaus could be as high as 2,000 meters. The two rainy seasons help contribute to the fertile land. The Axum empire was formed around 400 B.C.E. Many people believe that is was first founded by the son of King Solomon of Israel and the Queen of Sheba. This is only a popular legend and has yet to be confirmed. Around 100 C.E, Aksum empire rose in power and began to expand its territories. At this time the ruler was Zoskales
