Examples of these castles were Eye Castle in Suffolk, Brecon Castle in Wales and many many more castles built by William. These castles were built every time William invaded or took over a city, therefore they were a sign of his strength and that he and his army were there to stay and to take over. It also showed the pride he had for his country. However, there are also downsides to castles as it meant that the cavalry could not be used in the towns, also they
He brought about a sense of pride back into the Kingdom through his work and his clothing – it won him great respect from his nobles, which increased his power. Unlike Henry VI, who by his death had run up a debt of £370,000, Edward was much more in control of his money. Using practices like ‘Wardship’ – in which he would enjoy the income of a child until they came of age and then sometimes charge an entry fee and sell them their marriage – he could develop a good income. He also used ‘bishoprics’ where he would take revenue from bishops even if their property
Even soldiers worked on building the battering rams and one of the weaknesses of the battering ram was that it had to be brought right up to the castle gate or wall which left the attackers vulnerable. They were later replaced by more advanced weapons like the catapult or the trebuchet. The design for a battering ram was from simple to advance. In the middle ages they used wood fitted with a metal head which was hung by metal bands and were often fitted with wheels for performance and speed. They were often fitted with supports which kept the ram in place and helped to create a greater force.
After all the stories they had heard describing William in various ways, they couldn’t believe his true appearance. Going back to Medieval times, knights were too follow the code of chivalry. To be a chivalrous man, one had to be respectful, honorable, and humble. A Medieval hero is a man who is self aware, and understands that he is flawed. It is someone who believes that, “It’s not about winning the game, it’s about how you play ”.
This is but one of the hero’s encounters, he fought hard and it made him a great warrior through it. This can be quite different for a knight. Sir Gawain’s skill was with a sword and a spear is highly looked upon throughout his tale but his battles are briefly mentioned. Altogether, his guts show when confronted with the ugly winter is protrayed as a much more important story then his victories over the monsters. While this is not a general rules for romances, it is an indication of the tendency that brute strength is less important than other qualities.
When we know about history, we know that we are apart of a great success. Human beings are a social being and its evolution depends and will depend on the transmission of knowledge. New generations are getting smarter every day because of the knowledge of the ancestors. War has been and is a continuation of politics, but by other means. The territorial disputes, the domain of a civilization over another, fights on inheritance rights or trade routes are trying to solve through diplomacy and have failed, is when war has been declared.
The Anglo-Saxon By: Amy, Cris, Stefani, Jessica, abby, & chencho The #Anglo-Saxons were initiated in 449 B.C. The peoples native tongue and culture is influenced by English. The Anglo-Saxons were classified like barbarians but were really much different. They lived of warfare not of luxuries, “the Anglo-Saxon England was born of warfare, remained forever a military society, and came to its end in battle.” they believe they live only to support and protect there members from any enemies, and do not believe in an after life. An Anglos-Saxons belief is much different from the majority of the beliefs that we have today, but the religion, beliefs, and literature we have today in America, first initiated in the time of the Anglo-Saxon age.
During King Arthur’s time, he had many Chivalry codes brought onto his knights. These codes made the men more respectable, trustworthy and honorable. Today in society we’ve loast all values that the knights had. There are five important codes that should be brought back. In today’s society there are many people who have forgotten about the chivalry codes and dishonor the values we had by doing harm onto others, that’s why for the first code to be brought back should be “Destroy evil in all of it’s monstrous forms”.
Excalibur was the sword of king ship, an it came to pass that the man that pulls the sword out would and will be made on to be the king of England. Excalibur was also a force not to be wrecked with if you did not use it right it could also go against you. The Trial serves two purposes: to prove worth and to atone for wrongs and purify. When the Trial is used to prove the worth of the hero, the hero must prove that he is capable and worthy enough to be the hero and that he will be able to face the ultimate conflict. This aspect of the Trial is what is also known as the Initiation (Campbell 97).
Religion and philosophy would create a strong foundation for any upcoming civilization, which is why I believe that it is an essential factor. Another important component to building a strong civilization is political dynamism. After conquering the Indian army the Spaniards became very advanced in weapons and transportation. They were advanced because of political power. By the Spaniards leader, Pizarro, having political ties it was easier for him to get access to weapons that the Indians did not have knowledge of.
