New technological advances, as well as better weaponry, were one of the many causes of the Age of Exploration. The Age of Exploration has lasting effects on the New World, Europe and still currently today. The three major effects were economic, cultural, and social changes. One of the effects could be summarized as an economic, cultural, and social change. This effect was the new advances, of technology and weaponry.
This revolutionized the way people lived and affected the everyday lives of man. Writing and pottery were also invented allowing people to express their ideas and make useful everyday items. People also had started to keep time and invented calendars during this era which allowed them to be far more organized. Some other major technological changes were in the tools of the people. During the Paleolithic time period, people had used tools made of wood and stone.
Looking at the past, and exploring technologies that have had an impact on society is a valuable tool for entrepreneurs. There is much to learn about the Industrial Revolution and how the technologies developed at the time played such a huge role. The Industrial Revolution first instigated in England, then spread like wildfire throughout the world during the 18th and early 19th centuries. The lives of ordinary people was transformed dramatically, by a series of engineering inventions and industrial achievements allowing industry to develop so fast that society could barely keep up.
There were several “new” kinds of technology in the Civil War era. Many of those new technologies changed the way that the war was fought, and how effective certain strategies were. These new technologies not only affected life during the war, but also affected life after the war. There were several different kinds of technology used by both sides in the war, such as telegraphs, railroads, and the first submarines. Telegraphs were used to send messages back and forth, and were much quicker than sending it via a messenger on horseback.
Science and technology play an important role in a well functioning society. However, they also can distinctly altar war due to the heightened ways of strategizing. The advancements of both science and technology elevated the sophistication of weaponry, in comparison to prior methods of fighting. This ultimately led to an increased number of casualties, new medicinal resources, and more modernistic ways of communicating.
Perceived by many to be an intellectual Dark Age, due to propaganda, the Medieval era contrarily, as agreed on by scholars, had many advancements and discoveries in the realm of science were made. The Historic record reveals that, “The society and culture of the High Middle Ages was complex, dynamic, and innovative…throughout the cultural sphere an unprecedented intellectual ferment developed” (World Book). Advancement in science through history has given humanity more clear view and new perspectives on how the world works. Born in the mid thirteenth century during the High and Late Middle Ages, Dante, the author of Paradiso, had unrestrained access to the academic world and the science that filled it. Although viewed as a religious work Paradiso produces many examples of the advancements in medieval science, such as astronomy, and the experimental method providing Dante the scientific platform to explain the universe he experienced in a plausible way.
While it’s not used today, it’s important to know its historical impact. Imperative in paving the wat for a new era of communication and the advancement of long distance communication, Morse code and the telegraph also aided in the Industrial Revolution. II. Morse code is a system comprised of dits and dahs. A.
The Industrial Revolution was brought about with the introduction of machinery and technology with the help of many inventors. The most crucial contributors in this revolution was James Watt who had revolutionised the steam engine. His invention drove the Revolution by improving trade, transportation as well as created more jobs. Though with beneficial outcomes of this development there were some negative results such as child labour and pollution. Trade within the Industrial revolution was enhanced with Watt’s improved steam engine.
The industrialization of England brought a lot of change to the nation. It was either a good change or a bad change. It all depended on what the change was, for example more factories meant that there were more jobs or more people in the city meant that it was over populated. England had the resources to build, to use, and they had land to build in. They had many waterways connecting the East Coast and the West Coast, this allowed them to do many things, for example the rivers was a source of power for these factories.
During the civil war (lasting from 1861 to 1865) many changes in our nation occurred. Some of those changes were in government, agriculture, work, laws, military, and machinery. The military and machinery advancements that occurred during the civil war were very large steps into the things we used today. They modernization of the military tactics and weapons made it easier for the U.S. to fight and the new machinery made those new “modern” ideas come to life.
During the classical period, many things were invented that still influence our world today. Many great inventions were improved, and sometimes wiped out completely,but a few survived, Such as, the calendar, roads, and form of government. One influential innovation is the calendar (Doc.4). This was invented by Pope Gregory in the Middle Ages(Doc.4).The calendar helps us know, when to wear coats or shorts. It helps farmers know when to plant and harvest.
Have you ever noticed that history gave us a lot of cultural contributions? From the tools created throughout the early civilizations to the new types of innovations created in the Industrial Revolution, it is clear to see that cultural contributions throughout history has made a huge impact on our world. The best example of how contributions influence our culture is in the Renaissance. Throughout this important piece of history, there have been many new types of artwork, literature and inventions.
A well-known writer, Mark Twain, used the term “Gilded Age” to symbolize the corruption of the American society despite its glittering surface of wealth following the American Civil War. Many industrial leaders following the war were criticized as “Robber Barons” -- the idea of becoming rich through unethical business practices -- or “industrial statesmen” for their economic influence in America. Their tactics of becoming wealthy and prosperous were often criticized as dictating the rich and the poor and destroying competitions, but the philanthropic contributions of these “industrial statesmen” toward the American economy and society are tremendous in creating America as a domination of power. According to many people, these “industrial
The Anaconda plan was completed to perfection by the Union troops, it brought the North to victory. The North’s most aggressive battlefield tactic took place during Sherman’s march to the sea. General Sherman believed that the only way to win the war would be to crush the Confederacy’s will to fight. He used a tactic called total war. Total war is when no mercy is given to anyone.
