This would have created much better defence from attack than a wooden fort. However there is no solid evidence that there was ever a Motte of earth crowned by timber buildings, it has only been mentioned in fictional stories which could stretch the truth. King John had Kenilworth Castle from 1174 – 1244 and used it for defence and strategic importance. New features were built such as a Great Tower, a single bailey causeway, the outer circuit made of stone with towers and improved water defences. The King built these because he wanted it to be a strongly defended royal castle.
so it is owned by the owners of theme parks, which gives it the touristy feel. Finally, Kenilworth castle, Kenilworth castle was built in 1266, during the 6-month siege of Kenilworth, this was believed to be the longest siege in English history. It started out as a motte and baily, this was how the castle (and many others at this time) was first formed. Then in the 13th century stone walls, entrance towers and some overhead cover was built, these developments were built because they needed to fortify defenses. In the early 1400’s huge improvements to the outer walls and entrance were built, as well as the great hall, the outer wall improvements were for extra defense and the great hall was built for an
The beginning of realistic depictions of humans in Greek art began in the Archaic period (700-480 BC). Active sculptors in this period were influenced by the Egyptians. However the fact that the Greek sculptures were represented in the nude was a major difference between the two. Male sculptures created during this period showed no emphasis on bone and muscle anatomy. This was clearly evident by the lack of details around the joints in the knees and arms.
The historic Fort San Pedro has served many purposes to the Cebuanos. It was constructed in 1565 upon the arrival of Legazpi on the ship San Pedro but remained unfinished until 1738. Originally intended to protect the island from Muslim raiders, the port also served as the barracks and defense post of the US army during the American occupation; a prison camp during the 3 year Japanese invasion; the city zoo; and now a small park. For many centuries, renovations have removed the waterfront lying few blocks from the
It was administered from the Town of Santiago de la Vega, now called Spanish Town, and much of the architecture of the original buildings is still evident today in the town square. Economic activity consisted primarily of production for domestic consumption, and to a lesser extent the supply of Spanish ships. In 1655, it was captured by the British expedition led by Admirals Penn and Venables, following their unsuccessful invasion of Hispaniola. By this time, the island was of little significance to the Spanish crown, and accordingly, very little was done to defend it against the British. As with the previous period, the influence of the Spanish settlement on the subsequent social, economic and political life of the island was marginal.

Three months later, the Aztec empire fell and Mexico became New Spain. In 1523, as governor of New Spain, he finally had the power he wanted. To contribute in his gain of power, Cortes had the objective to spread Christianity to non-Christians such as the Natives he
If a string is attached around the circular apparatus with a pulley with weight attached then it would normally fall at the rate of gravity (9.8 m/s^2). But the laws and principles of inertia from the platform, and along with mass attached would prevent this from happening. The inertia of the mass on the apparatus can be found through the acceleration of the hanging mass. As a result, there was little percent error in the values thus making the theoretical values to the masses correct. The theoretical value was .04 kgm^s as opposed to .0488 kgm^2 which yielded a -22% error as shown in the data.
MISSION SAN LUIS OBISPO DE TOLOSA Mission San Luis Obispo de tolosa is a Spanish mission founded in 1772 by father junipero Serra. These are some of the nicknames of this mission prince of the missions, mission in the valley of the bears, the accidental mission. But let’s get back to the mission.

Traders were attracted from throughout the world and within 50 years, it was the most influential port in Southeast Asia with ships from dozens of kingdom great and small flocking in the harbor. This rising power and prosperity of the Melaka drew attention of the Europeans who wished to gain control of the valuable spice trade. The Portuguese seized the commercial kingdom of Melaka from the Malays in 1511 but were unsuccessful in conquering other areas on the Malay Peninsula, ultimately bringing in colonialism that ran into the 20 th century. The next phase comes with the emergence of the European colonial powers, first thePortuguese?, who captured Melaka in 1511, then the?Dutch?and finally the?British?, who established bases at?Penang?and?Singapore?. Three nations struggled for the control of Malacca Strait just after the fall of Melaka, the Portuguese (in Melaka), the Sultanate of Johor, and the Sultanate of Aceh.
