Roman Aqueducts Even in the 21st century the ingeniousness of Roman engineering, dating back to 700 B.C., is not lost. The scale and integrity of their projects are still marveled about today. United States citizens are much like the Romans in that we continually work to improve our lifestyles by making daily life more convenient. We do it on a different level than the Romans but the simple fact is—from transportation (air, sea and land) to getting a drink of water or taking a shower—we are always seeking improvement. The Romans influenced such a vast area of the world for an extended amount of time due to their superior engineering skills.
By having a written language Egypt now had a written history instead of things being based off of memory. The history would include a chronological list of the kings whom had served as Egypt’s ruler. The new technique also provided things such as written laws, an expansion of culture, religious inscriptions such as spells to protect the dead, biographies and autobiographies, stories, and a means of recording things regarding business relations. The development of a written language benefited Egypt in many ways, but another discovery also had quite an impact on Egypt and is still held in high regards today. Another technique that emerges in Egypt is monumental architecture.
In moments where a decision had to be made quickly, a leader was generally appointed. As the region and its people expanded, the need for a leader also increased. Hammurabi aimed to win the friendship of all the societies in Mesopotamia. He did so by repairing their walls and temples and building canals that produced great harvests throughout all the land. This region became one of the most fertile lands in all of Babylon.
They did everything they were told because they thought that their king was almost like a “chosen one” sent down from the Gods. In the Nile River Valley with the king having all the power, it was easier to get things done, so they were able to advance in technology, science and art. Even though the Nile River Valley was so far back in time ranging from 3000-2000 B.C.E, they were very advanced for their time. Since the Nile River Valley was on higher grounds, it was able to take advantage of the river and the people could trade and sell goods which allowed their civilization to grow and advance. During the spring, there would be immense rainfall which lead to flooding, and when the water would finally recede, it left behind a layer of rich, fertile muck and it
Furthermore the composite bow was another pertinent contribution to Egyptian weaponry as this combined with the chariot were the main weapons attributed to military success in this period. Even though these contributions were classed as short term, the basic designs and ideas behind their designs would of contributed to the long-term evolution of the military technology as well as the new metals introduced such as bronze. The significance of the Hyksos’ reign more significantly impacted Egypt in the long term, principally with the psychological aftermath they prompted. The shock of their invasion into Egypt resonated for hundreds of years and majorly influenced all of
Mesopotamians wrote down what event happened in cuneiform and wrote the date so they know when it happened. Some extraordinary inventions were the ones the Mesopotamian invented. According to Document 1and 2, both a secondary source, the first document states that Mesopotamia “contributed immensely to industrial technology” by inventing useful objects like the wheel. The second document talks about the ziggurat, a temple built to the gods that looked like huge squares of different size placed on top of each other starting from the largest to the smallest.
They developed trade links to many countries and established lots of new herbs and plants. The Egyptians also found a new way of communication – writing. This is a key theme throughout Egyptian medicine as we can use written records as evidence for our theories on what actually happened after prehistoric times. Egypt was very different from prehistoric Isbister; it was a much more wealthy country and one of the most advanced civilisations known to the world. Its wealth was based on the River Nile and the fertile soil in which gave rich harvests of good crops, farming was so successful that even land owners in Egypt became very fortunate.
I personally think all of the use of technology was effective because they had so many resources and made some real breakthroughs in investigative technology. The general investigation methods were generally good because through searching his house they found the body. However they may have been a bit too upfront with Hawley which gave him the chance to flee which show a lack of effectiveness. The main improvement for me though was in the organisation of the police, since the JTR cases they had earned a lot respect from the public due to the improvement in organisation making them look stronger which I think was vital in this case. So overall I think the investigation into the Crippen murders was very effective, because even though there were a few mistakes ultimately they made up for them and showed real progress to catch
Population increased as agricultural productivity did. The more food surplus they had, enabled them to support a larger population than ever before. The Han’s agriculture increased partly because of the iron industry for tougher implements, and the roman began to specialize production, and concentrate on latifundia for export. Colonization’s of neighboring nations also brought in large amounts of citizens. The Han Empire invaded northern Vietnam, Korea, and Xiongnu and subjected them to Han rule.
With a body that is rounded with long loose legs. This genre of art influenced the art of this civilization because it was new to have sculpture that looked more realistic than the others that have been around in the past. Lysippos is known for creating a new canon of ideal proportions for the human body. This new physique that he has created happened to gain favor and dominate through the end of the Hellenistic era. This artwork expresses and reveal what their culture was about and what they looked up to.
