Seeing as both cultures are constantly being associated with one another I decided to compare the Cupisnique vessel with a vessel from the Moche civilization, which existed from approximately 100 to 800 C.E. (Module 5.4.). The Moche vessel that was introduced in this course was from The Fowler Museum located at UCLA. The ceramic vessels from the Moche civilization were said to portray warriors, rulers, and gods. Moche vessels were also buried with their owners to accompany them in the afterlife.
The Calatagan Ritual Pot is an artifact dating to prehistory. It’s considered as “earthenware”, meaning that the materials used to make the pot are organic (like clay). It has inscriptions on its shoulder (near the mouth of the pot), and is one of the only artifacts with that kind of ancient writing, which is why the National Museum considers it as a National Cultural Treasure.
•There’s a strong resemblance between Clovis tools and weapons from ice age Europe. •The Solutrean laurel leaf is very similar to the Clovis point and seems to have been made using the same kind of technique. •Simple stone blades and points associated with a hearth were uncovered.
Greeks had conquered the world, so they exported their way of life. But, there are no kingdoms without a king, and with Alexander’s swift and stunning compromise, his empire would crumble almost as quickly as it was built. 404 BC., a long and bloody 27-years’ war has come to an end. Athens is dominated and destroyed
Earthenware vessels for Jamestown can be used to demonstrate
This description can be collaborated with the fact that the depredations of the Peloponnesian War were occurring within the Grecian domain, between the two ancient Greek city-states. These were the Delian league of Athens and the Peloponnesian league Sparta. Reflected in the building’s metopes, Silverman (n.d.) denotes
One of them was the “chank shell”. Extremely rare to find in Florida. A lot of the shell tools were similar to wedges made of metal, gouges, ages found in the Miami Circle excavation. Pottery from the Miami circle were from simple un-attractive bowls, even tho some were decorated.
Since ancient times, the Aegean Sea has been a centerpiece for much rich cultural influence. This influence is seen in our architecture, exotic foods, old pottery, myths, and other things that have lasting effects on us. This fabulous place of mystery and wonder is what gives us most of our picture of Greece, Crete, and other surrounding islands: crystal clear, sparkling water around beautiful islands with lush green landscapes and ruins of old. In this project, I have delved into this and have come back with knowledge and connections of how Greece became the true birthplace of the West. Smaller islands, such as Santorini and Patmos, have been quiet in modern times but active in eras previous.
The start of the period known as "Classical Greece" starts at around 800 B.C.E. and ends around 400 B.C.E. Classical Greece tells tales of Athens against Sparta, the Peloponnesian War. But that is only some of the events, as the achievements are a feat to behold. New branches of mathematics, such as geometry established new theorems, columns were prominently used in buildings of importance, and the first Olympics were first held to honor the gods and celebrate human achievement. The contributions of classical Greece are seen in Western civilization in the continuation of the Olympics, in the realistic depiction of subjects in various forms of art, in the development of medical ethics, in the architectural use of columns in the Western building
Archeologists have found these tools next to an unfinished statue (Moai Easter Island). This is a clue because the Polynesians may have intended to finish the statue before leaving but, they may have forgotten or left it there because they have made a mistake. According to Khaled Azzam “Near them there were also chisels and axes made of obsidian.” (Moai Easter Island).
They traded mostly with Obsidian, a dark volcanic rock. The wealth accumulated was for many functions. One function was in the funerary practice. They buried their dead in stone pits called cist graves. These graves occasionally contain offerings like jewelry, weapons, pottery, and figures.
Several household items have been found by archaeologists in Pompeii. From Mount Vesuvius’ eruption, the unprepared was buried by volcanic ash. It was destroyed quickly and was preserved like a time capsule. After the eruption archaeologists studied the remains of Pompeii. Many parents had to act as “doctor moms.”
The museum holds an impressive collection of pottery from the Greek era (575-500 BCE). The pottery of the ancient Greeks with their intricate forms and elaborate decorations are truly awe-inspiring. The painted decoration in the pottery is the work of a laser beam guided by a highly sophisticated computer programming. The lines flow with extreme precision to form a perfectly shaped images. Moreover, the materials (paint, wood, clay, etc.)
