The Greek army known as the hoplites was named after their shield, “Hoplon”. They wore armor that consists of a tunic, a helmet that protected their face, breastplate, and greaves to protect the lower legs. They carried round shields about a meter in diameter and spears as their main weapon and short curved swords. Their equipment and armor was exhausting to carry that slaves usually accompanied the soldiers to carry their equipment. Battles in Ancient Greece were close-quartered, combatant and brutal; the hoplites armor was made specifically for such battles.
The Gupta empire on the other hand was more influential even though they did not have any influential ruler and had a smaller empire. Both the Mauryan and Gupta empires changed through government structure, religion, and society. These two empires fed off of each other in religion because they both were Hindu and later on had sparks of Buddhism. In government the Mauryan Empire went off of the Ashashastra for guidance on how to rule
Mount Everest is mainly situated in the Mahalangur mountain range in Nepal and Tibet. The international border between China and Nepal runs across Everest 's precise summit point.

The mountainous country of Wales made it necessary for the Welsh to hunt from great distances, so they increased the length and thickness of their bows until they got the ideal hunting range (Featherstone 25). The longbow is a bow that is at least over four feet in length, and its overall length is much debated but is generally said to be anywhere from five and half to seven feet in length. In the article The Longbow, it states, “Around 1300, during a skirmish with the Welsh, an English knight received a wound from an arrow that had penetrated his chain mail, passed through his thigh, the chain mail on the other side of his leg, a wooden saddle and wounded the horse” (The Longbow). England decided to adopt the longbow since it saw that the common peasant could handle a weapon that could take out a knight in full armor (The Longbow). The English began to realize that the knights of old were not entirely invulnerable as they once had been against the common infantry.
Prior to China’s invasion in 1950, Tibet maintained a unique culture, religion and language for centuries. The country was first inhabited by modern humans 15,000 years ago, making it one of the oldest settlements in the world and although much has changed in Tibet since then, their culture and national identity has remained inseparably linked to Tibetan Buddhism since the 8th Century. But all that took a turn for the worst in 1950 when China invaded Tibet, defeated the smaller Tibetan armies and forced the nation to give up its independence. Then, after a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959, the 14th Dalai Lama (Tibet’s most respected man and the nation’s political and spiritual leader) fled into exile in India, followed by thousands of Tibetans.
The chinese were strongly connected to nature, as shown in the I Ching; The eight trigrams symbolize heaven, earth, thunder, wind, water, fire, mountains, and water again.

The I Ching was such a significant part of chinese daily life and culture, especially since for a long period of time, it was used for the civil service exams for government
Debates as to whether the ritual should be performed due to ethics and the effect it has on the economic status of Tibet have altered the observance of the ritual. Despite the influence of modern culture and ethics affecting the observer’s significance of the Tibetan Buddhist Sky Burial, it is still performed regularly in modern society as it assists in the deceased accumulation of karmic merit and reaching Enlightenment. The Tibetan Sky Burial begins immediately after the adherent has passed away; the body is placed in the foetal position amongst burning Juniper incense whilst a Lama (spiritual leader) chants necessary prayers from the Bardo Thodol (Tibetan Book of the Dead). The prayers are recited as a means of readying the soul for the next stage of Samsara.

However, men who fought in columns and more methodical ways of battle chose heavier shields that could withstand heavier blows from swords and maces. Each shield would also have straps that knights could put their arm through and some shields would have a notch in the top of the shield which would help in resting a spear on during a charge. For many men in the archery, small round shields made of wood would be used. These were used to block arrows from injuring the body during battle. This was called a wooden knight cross shield and offered sufficient protection for archers.

Due to China’s Warring Period after the Han Dynasty, Buddhism gained popularity because no imperial authority was around to enforce laws. Once an empire rose to power, Buddhism was turned against. Initially the Chinese defended Buddhism and its policies, but after centuries, others increasingly analyzed how Buddhism had not presence in older documents. Buddhism began to be blamed for the political and social problems of Chinese society. An additional document, such as a graph, that demonstrates actual numbers of Buddhist converts of this time period would help determine if the given documents’ author’s statements about Buddhism were accurate.
History takes place because changes occur throughout both past as well as current civilizations. Much of the past has succumbed to change because of an apparent impersonal force, war. Through war, many advances arise allowing new civilizations to begin as well as old civilizations to fall. Over the course of several millennia, war has brought both beginnings as well as ends to several dynasties in China as well as shifts in religion across Islam. War in all civilizations has been an important driving factor for conquest as well as a gain in wealth.
