How influential was Sun Yatsen in the fall of the Qing dynasty? The Qing dynasty was replaced by a Republic system in 1911 after the revolution was accidentally sparked by a premature bomb explosion in Wuchang. A key person in the revolution and downfall of the Qing was Sun Yatsen. His ideological ideas of how China should become a Western civilised country, where it would be more developed – socially and politically, inspired many people to look up to him as a leader, as he was initially the one who introduced ideas which China had never previously heard of. However, Sun Yatsen was not in the country at the time the revolution started, implying that the Qing would’ve fallen anyway.
Ancient Egyptians were the first people to spread the practice of tattooing. By 2,000 b.c the art had spread out all the way to south East Asia which then was brought to Japan and spread along the silk route. In Pacific cultures tattoos were considered a huge historic significance but when western missionaries arrived they forced this art form to decline, in most Christian churches this practice was discouraged. There were many different methods of early tattooing that developed in different cultures. Some of the earliest tattooing instruments can be found in Europe.
Even though the amphitheater, church and tombs are clearly visible from the surface, the discovery of Myra is credited to Charles Fellows. He is a British Archaeologist and discovered the site in 1840, after studying documentations about the ancient Lycian Empire and their ruined cities. The study of ancient sources written by geographers like Strabo, as well as mentions of the Lycian Union in Homer’s Iliad and Herodotus’ works allowed Fellows to locate Myra, along with the five other cities which dominated the Lycian Union. Showing that even though these works may be bias, the interpretations of factual evidence can still lead to great dsicoveries. Archaeologists first detected the buried sections of the ancient city in 2009 using a ground-penetrating radar that revealed anomalies underground.
Hal Saflieni Hypogeum is a cultural property of exceptional prehistoric value. This unique monument dates back to early antiquity (about 2500 BC) and it is the only known example of a subterranean structure of the Bronze Age. The hypogeum was discovered accidentally in 1902 by a stonemason who was laying the foundations of some houses on the island of Malta. Temi Zammit, the first Director of Malta's Museums Department, assumed responsibility for the excavation. His excavation yielded a
The early people who scraped primitive drawings onto cave walls used some of the same tools and techniques that artisans still use today. Since then engraving gave the beginning for the art of inlay! D. Preview: Because the entire history of the art of inlay up to modern times is too extensive i will focus only on three questions: Why did people inlay? what materials and technique do modern artists use for inlay? Transition: Let`s find out why ancient people did inlay.
There are stone mortars and presses used for olive oil extraction that date back to 5000 BC ( History of olive oil in Israel ). Archaeological findings from the Minoan Palaces in Crete are fine examples of olive oil’s role in the Cretan or Minoan civilization, which reached its zenith between 2000 and 1450 BC. Archaeological finds proving that the Minoans used olive oil in their daily lives are found everywhere in Crete. One particularly impressive discovery is the untouched olives with the flesh preserved, found at the bottom of a cup sunk in a water cistern at the Minoan Palace of Kato Zakros. The Minoans used olive oil in their diet, as a cleanser instead of soap, as the base for scents and ointments, as a medicine, in tanning, for lighting and to protect delicate surfaces.
Introduction Chapter one: Building of the temple Chapter two: the gods Chapter three: Worshiping the gods Conclusion Bibliography For my investigation I have decided to study Greek religion. In this topic I will cover the temple, all the different gods and then finally worshiping and sacrifices. The Greeks believed in the ‘old gods’ up until 5 AD when Christianity started spreading. This has been my favourite religion to learn about because I find it interesting how we know so much about them through artefacts that have been found over the years. Originally, temples were just small structures made from wood and mud brick.

In the follow pages I will be proving that Trade in ancient India was a major part of their culture.
Papyrus is a type of plant that grows in the marshes in the Nile (Chrisp 21). The Egyptians took the inner core of the papyrus plant and made it into a sheet of paper (Chrisp21). Their pens were made from reeds, and the ink that they used was soot or charcoal mixed with gum (Chrisp 21). Jean Francois Champolion was the one who deciphered the Hieroglyphs in the Ancient Egyptian times (Agnese 34). Religion was very important to the Ancient Egyptians, and had a lot of influence on their daily life (“Religion”).
Then, starting with the years of 3.000 BC, Mesopotamia and Egypt, with the effect of inventing and using the alphabet, made big progress in trade activities and succeeded to go ahead of Anatolia. During those times, the people living in the west and south regions of Anatolia were named as Luvi. They were a matriarchal society and worshiping mother goddess. It is known that some Luvis have moved to Crete and created the Minoan civilization. Among the years 2.000 BC, the tribes named as Achaeans, living around Balkans, invaded Greece.
