In 1895 the French peacefully negotiated a protectorate over Yatenga; in 1896 they forcefully occupied Ouagadougou; and in 1897 they annexed Gourma and the lands of the Bobo, Lobi, and Gurunsi peoples. An Anglo-French agreement in 1898 established the boundary with the Gold Coast (now Ghana) (Liebhardt 2007, 78-106). The region of present-day Burkina Faso was administered as part of the French colony of Soudan (then called Upper Senegal-Niger and now mostly part of Mali) until 1919, when it was made a separate protectorate as Upper Volta. In 1932, it was divided among Côte d'Ivoire, Soudan, and Niger for administrative convenience. In 1947, Upper Volta was reestablished as a separate territory within the French Union, and in 1958 it became an autonomous republic within the French
They eventually amalgamated inot one Zande group. The Azande means “the people who possess much land,” in recognition of those conquests and the growth of territory. By the early twentieth century the Zande district was under British rule, which lasted until 1953. Sudan claimed independence in 1956. The Zande live in an are of rolling hills with abundant rivers and streams.

Prompt A: The Inca Empire was a complex society whose reign lasted less than 100 years. Stretching from the western corner of modern Columbia down towards the center of Chile and Argentina, the Incas occupied a vast area to both the east and west of the Andes. Within this large expanse, its inhabitants drew benefit from the coastal, mountainous, and rainforest climates. The western coast and lowlands afforded maize, cotton, fish, fruit, and shells while the forest to the east of the Andes provided fruit, but also was a good resource for wood, feathers, and coca leaves. The Andes themselves was rich with metal and was the perfect place to grow maize, potatoes, quinoa, and was a good environment to raise llamas and alpacas for their wool.
Surface textures vary. The soil is generally alkaline. Elevations range from 2,500 feet to more than 8,749 feet at Guadalupe Peak. Although most of Texas is located on flat plains or rolling plains, there are mountains in far West Texas. The highest point in the state is Guadalupe Peak at 8,749 feet above sea level.
Garrett Monk February 12 2011 1) There were many different geographic regions where the Mayan people lived. They lived in dense tropical forests; rain forests, river valleys, natural sinkholes, and caverns. Mostly there were two general zones. First and less known is the Highlands, second was the lowlands which was made up of two parts. The west which lays a plain made fertile by the erosion of the volcanic mountains behind it.

An outcrop of the Pennsylvanian carbonate units was visited 8 miles south of Silverton, CO on Hwy 550 June 14. The outcrop is located near Molas Lake on Molas Pass and was accessed by foot on the Colorado Trail from Hwy 550. Honacker Trail formation lies in the upper part of the Hermosa Group in the Paradox Basin and below this lie successive carbonate units. The Paradox Basin is a depression controlled by active basement faults which filled with sediment as predominately arkosic material was eroded from the Ancestral Rockies during the Uncompahgre Uplift. The uplift was surrounded by an epicontinental sea where sediment accumulated in marine margins creating sandstones, siltstones and limestones throughout the Basin.

The size of the Grampians national park is 167,000 hectares. 4. Today's Grampians mountain range lay under shallow seas millions of years ago. Over the centuries, heat and pressure caused the solidification of the sandy bottom into great slabs of sandstone which, disturbed by tectonic forces, were forced upwards to become the jagged peaks we see today in Grampians National Park. 5.
