“Explain what archaeological evidence reveals about Bronze Age society on Thera” Excavations and archaeological finds have provided historians and archaeologists with significant information what the society of Bronze Age Thera was like. Artefacts, such as pottery present evidence towards Thera as a Minoan influenced society. Frescoes and other items point towards religion being an underlying factor of society, as well as the possibility of a social hierarchy. Excavations of the streets of Akrotiri point towards extensive town planning. These finds allow historians and archaeologists to build a picture on the lifestyle and society in Bronze Age Thera.
However, evidence shows that Sumer, Egypt, and China believed in gods closely related to nature. They looked to them for protection and help. In each religion they had priests that communicated with the gods. Each culture established diverse systems of writing and noticeable architecture. They also made different inventions that are important to the world.
SUN AND ANCESTRAL WORSHIP Another theory suggests that Stonehenge and Southern Circle were places of worship. It is believed that the sun and the ancestors where worshiped at these sites. It is believed that because many Stone Age communities saw their ancestors as gods or spiritual guides and the sun as a life sustaining god, that Stonehenge could have been a place of worship to these communities. PLACE OF HEALING Further Theories suggest that Stonehenge could have been a sacred healing ground. This theory is supported by remains discovered where disease or illness was evident.

For example, Tlaloc, he was the God of rain and water, he would send rain to help Aztec to grow their plants and
another similarity would be that although they used herbs and medicines the Egyptians still didn’t know the real cause of disease so when after diagnosis they felt helpless they looked for different reasons which lead them back to believing in magic however this wasn’t as common as it was in the prehistoric people as the life that suited them didn’t require so many explanations whereas the Egyptian lifestyle did as they were a wealthy developing country. A few main changes that occurred were that there were specialist doctors as well as
Like the Act, the purpose of the PCAOB is to protect the interests of investors and build the public’s trust in the preparation of informative, accurate, and independent audit reports. The PCAOB recently voted to change the way they handle internal controls, which are one of the most important assets for most companies. There have been several proposed modifications and numerous delays to the effective start dates of certain sections of the original Act, particularly Rule 404. While many proposals were presented to the PCAOB, little relief has been granted to-date. Below is a recap of some of the key changes to Rule 404 with regard to smaller companies: * In late 2005, the SEC extended the compliance date to comply with Rule 404 requirements for its first fiscal year ended on or after July 15, 2007.
The physiognomy of this person, like that of the other assistant, appears, admittedly on a subjective basis, to be non-Mayan. The clyster held in both hands of this individual has a characteristic shape motivating a new interpretation for at least one element of the Maya glyphic script; and the three huge jugs depicted, apparently filled with whatever is being administered in the enema ritual, have their own secrets to be investigated. The following is an attempt to follow up some of the implications of the scene on this Maya vessel for our understanding of the Classic Maya ritual vision quest. Implications of the Dispensing Assistant The individual receiving the enema is clearly the central figure in the scene on the vessel under consideration here.
