Irrigation Systems DBQ The ancient world is famous for its technological advances and innovative methods. Irrigation systems was one of those technological advances and were wildly popular in most Ancient civilizations. Irrigation systems in the Ancient world were beneficial because they effectively moved water to create fertile lands that gave an abundance of crops. However, irrigation systems were also problematic because they required gruesome manual labor and increased governmental control over citizens. Irrigation systems were a great way to transport water to easily grow an abundant amount of crops.
There were three main ways that colonialism affected Kenya, including socialism, religious and political. Colonialism affected Kenya using multiple methods, such as lessening Africa's abundance of raw materials, forcing Africans to share the same beliefs as the British and losing their land while being forced to move elsewhere. Kenya did not have nearly as much freedom as they did after being colonialized than before Britain had taken over. With support from the Document Based Question (DBQ), socialism is the first and most important technique that was used during the colonialization because it kept religion and politics alive. Referring to Document 4 in the DBQ, ethnic groups as well as some African leaders fought for certain rights although most Africans disagreed with the rules that were suggested to them.
There were many factors that helped the growth of The British Empire such as early settlers and trading companies, however the Navigation Acts rapidly accelerated the success of the trading companies therefore expanding The British Empire. The Navigation Acts were a set of laws that kept trade in the hands of the British; this gave them ultimate power over most trade and gained them a lot of wealth and thus success. Government and war played a significant role in the growth of the British Empire which gave them more power such as the EIC winning a number of sea battles against the Dutch which granted another firmum which gave the company more effective trading. Trading companies helped the growth of the British Empire, as without these, there would have been no income, meaning Britain couldn’t gain more land and secure more footholds. The trading companies played a significant role in triggering the Navigation Acts, but it was the acts themselves that put trade in the hands of the British.
Virginia and Massachusetts are considered to be two of the most well known colonies that resulted from European expansion and conquest. Although economic development in both colonies began around the same time, the way they were “brought up” created various distinguishable differences between them. The differing religions and views of the people who began these two colonies' development led to their very different political and economic systems. Although both colonies were established at the same time, Massachusetts and Virginia developed to be two very different places. The Virginia Companies was not as successful as Massachusetts because Massachusetts' success came through smart decisions regarding food and planning.
Rifle guns and canons would be the most popular sources of weaponry in warfare to date. They have evolved overtime and have become better, increasing in power, speed, and quantity therefore leaving a big impact. 2.Why were the Europeans the people who were able to conquer so many of the world’s greatest civilizations and control so much of the world? Based off of the film it would be safe to say that Europeans were able to conquer and control most of the world because off natural advantage. Looking into the geography of Europeans they were able to easily advance with their crops and production and the domestication of animals therefore producing a more stable society above all others so as they advanced they were able to take what they know and conquer neighboring lands.
The English and French Colonies in America The English and French were willing to venture for new life that could bring them wealth. The English were first to venture out for this new life. They were among the most important colonizers of the Americas. They set up local governments and a diverse economy. They farmed, fished and traded.
As the development of the colonies continued, many differences and similarities were revealed between the New England colonies, Middle colonies, and South colonies. While the differences in the geography of the three regions stood out, many similarities materialized as well. Each of the colonies supported diverse religions, such as Puritan, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and others. The economic activities in the three colonies were influenced by agriculture and differed from one colony to another. Also, the nationality varied from colony to colony, leaving similarities in this category scarce.
Some believed that Oregon would offer them a better life, a place where they could make their fortune. For others, the mere promise of adventure was incentive enough to move west. Pure and simple patriotism also motivated a great many who joined the Oregon movement. The Oregon Territory was claimed equally by both the United States and Great Britain. However, England dominated the region economically.
At some points, colonists seemingly were allowed plenty of freedom, while other times they were under strict English rule. This was all dependent on the rule of England. For example, when Charles II took the throne, he focused on control in the colonies but the reign of William and Mary marked the beginning of a half-century of neglect in the colonies. The inconsistent freedom the colonists were given frustrated them and ultimately contributed to the American
From the year 650 CE to 1750 CE it has gradually become easier and easier for goods to be exchanged through different sea routes. As the time progresses, trade and commerce becomes more convenient for merchants because as they travel by sea more and more frequently, they are able to become familiarized with the ocean and establish safer, faster, and more efficient sea routes. Another reason that trade and commerce have become easier, is through the development of many different navigational instruments to aid them through the ocean, such as the magnetic compass, the mariners astrolabe, and the marine chronometer. Many merchants and traders heavily depend on their navigational instruments and monsoon winds to avoid danger and to transport materials faster. An example of this would be that the Chinese and the Arabs, who had compasses, were able to cross large expanses of open water without the fear of getting lost or injured.
