The Massachusetts Bay colony and Virginia colony had an economic structure that differed in several ways. First, how the slaves were used in contrasting ways in the Massachusetts Bay and Virginia to benefit the revenue of recourses, and the differences in time of abolishment of slavery over the proceeding centuries. With the use of indentured servants in Virginia dwindling, slaves became the priority choice for labor work on plantations, toiling in fields with exhausting work and extremely high mortality rates; while on the other hand, slaves in the North and Massachusetts Bay had a much easier lifestyle consisting of house work and light farming. Secondly, because of the rocky and more or less inhospitable landscape for large scale farming in the Massachusetts Bay area, the main sources of income revolved around fishing, furs, and shipbuilding, small crop farming was viable as
However, most people looked badly upon religions outside of their own. One of the most close-minded settlements in America was New England, this was both a good and a bad thing as it brought the settlers closer together, but also pushed outsiders away. The Middle Colonies accepted many more churches, as there was a greater amount of ethnic and religious diversity. This shows the importance of religion by highlighting how it brought people with common religions together to form colonies and gave incentive to people who lived in England to immigrate to America for more religious freedom than they previously had. Colonists were provided with even more reason to practice their religion and continue their work in America for a better, more liberated life.
These two civilizations had many similarities but there was also things that were very different. For example both civilizations were agriculture based which led to food surplus. Another huge similarity was their belief in many gods. Yet, they had just as many differences. Even though both cultures were from the Americas, the Aztecs were located in Central America and the Incas in South America.
| | | | MayanCulture.com promotes tradition in a time when there is a lack in interest in high quality craftsmanship. Due to the high tourist demand, and desire for lower prices, there has been a change in the way most textiles are created in Mexico by the mayans. Instead of the dedicated time consuming work of traditional weaving and intricate embroidery, more and more of the handicrafts for sale were made by small factories which produce high quantity, while neglecting quality. * Sample artwork in cloth from around Mexico * Mayan weaving- history, symbolic design and techniquesThere are still high quality textiles that are created by indigenous communities living and working with their traditional customs. In this way, they preserve their ideology and age old way of life and craftsmanship.
Five norms in the Yanamamo cultural that differ from cultural norms of U.S. are they have little to no salt in their diet, they live in isolation, practice polygamy, are chauvinistic, and women have as many children as possible. These are just some of the Yanamamo cultural norms that differ vastly from that of U.S cultural norms. The Yanamamo culture has little to no salt in their diet while the U.S. culture has salt in almost anything you eat. The Yanamamo live on a no salt diet while the U.S. is one of the most obese cultures in the world and you can find loads of salt in any sit-down or fast food restaurant you eat at. A study done on the Yanamamo states, “The findings suggest that the hormonal adjustments to life-long low sodium intakes are similar to those achieved in acute sodium restriction of civilized man (WJ Oliver, 1975).” Based on this article the Yanamamo have evolved to the point that they can
Craft production was directly intertwined with many materialistic items that separated Seminoles and non-Indians. Tourism is what kept the market for crafts going so distinctively and contributed the demarcation of Seminole practices as cultural within the Seminole tribe. A member of Seminole tribe, Marie Phillips, said, “It was not just a hobby or something that we were supposed to learn; but we had to learn in order to survive.” Tobacco sales were also significant economic boosters for the Seminoles. Many people in the tribe viewed this as a positive effect on their economy. However, many citizens of Southern Florida were outraged by this.
OVERVIEW El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America. El Salvador, with coastal land on the Pacific Ocean, is the only Central American country that does not have a coast on the Atlantic Ocean. Mountains divide the country into three different regions: the southern coastal belt, the central valleys and plateaus, and the northern mountains. El Salvador used to be an agricultural country and given the difference in regions, crops also varied, and so did the culture between the three regions; coffee is grown in the mountains and cane on the coast; in the central valleys, corn and beans are grown for private consumption and for sale. As time has passed by, El Salvador has developed and invested more into the services sector and industrialization, the central region is the most industrialized, followed by the two other major cities in the country: San Miguel and Santa Ana.
"As the object of the Spartans was to increase the number of lots of land for their citizens, many of the conquered Messenians (those who did not manage to leave the area) were reduced to the condition of Helots. Servitude was hard, though their plight might have been harder, for they paid to their lords only one-half of the produce of the lands which they tilled.” (Bury and Meiggs, “A History of Greece” 4th edition) The Athenians, however, developed the first true democracy. “ Assembly was the regular gathering of male Athenian citizens (women also enjoyed the status of “citizen,” but without political rights) to listen to, discuss, and vote on decrees that affected every aspect of Athenian life, both public and private, from financial matters to religious ones, from public festivals to war, from treaties with foreign powers to regulations governing ferry boats.” (Christopher W.
In some colonies there was a high mix of people, while in others one group dominated. These regional differences caused the colonies not to develop one unique culture, but instead a group of distinctive cultures, each unique, and each regional. The regional differences and cultures among the colonies can be divided into four basic groups. These groups each dominated a different region, but they weren't the only group in their respective region. There were the Puritans of New England, the Quakers of the middle colonies, the Anglicans of the southern colonies, and the Scots-Irish of the Appalachian backcountry (Madaras & Sorelle, 1995).
The walled cities, temples, and palaces were made out of mud bricks because the desert climate did not contain much timber and stone. Sumerians also invented stronger tools and weapons made out of bronze and copper. For another accomplishment, Sumerians developed the first form of writing. This was called cuneiform and was written on clay tablets. Without the development of cuneiform the
