‘William’s reign was a period of major change in the government and administration of England’. Explain why you agree or disagree with this statement. (24 marks) Life after the Norman Victory in the Battle of Hastings for the Anglo-Saxons saw changes in government and administrative structures for England. New methods of justice and control were introduced as well as new castles and towns being constructed. As well as there being changes for the English culture there was also a lot of continuity in their lifestyle such as the Anglo-Saxon style of long hair and bushy beards and moustaches.
While the basic purpose of the Silk Road remained mostly the same, its’ goods and destinations went through many changes. The road started as a small transport route for Eurasian merchants, but later turned into an important economical and cultural necessity. Once Asian products, like spices and fabrics, were used by Europeans, they became dependent on them. This also occurred in Asia, and it began to shape both cultures. Also, due to the large amount of political changes that occurred during this expanse of time, the Silk Road also traveled through the new countries that began when the Roman Empire collapsed.
This victory and gain of the territory was not that convenient for the English, because they had to control all the territory and this was not that easy for them due to the debt their recent war had left them. As shown by Document A their territory had increased in size as well as their power but its economy did not provide enough for the maintenance. After the French and Indian War, Britain had gained more land as stated by Document A. This increased their power and demonstrated their control over the colonies. The gain of more land also brought them difficulties because this meant they not only had to govern there land, but also their new land or the colonies.
1993 DBQ After England established claims to the American lands, the vast tracts of land attracted immigration for various reasons during the 17th century. The significant settlements developed in the New England region in the north and the Chesapeake region towards the south. New England was primarily developed by the Puritans, who immigrated during the Great (Puritan) Migration between 1630s and 1640s to escape the religious persecution in Anglican England. Puritans led their lives based on strong beliefs, such as predestination – belief that one being saved was already determined by God. Unlike New England, the Chesapeake region developed a society that was not primarily dependent on religion; most of these people came to America to seek economic prosperity.
In part, this is another effect of the war of 1812.It was during and after this war that the country began to realize the importance of a united states began to rely less on the unorganized military military and more on trained soldiers. Another outcome of this was increased manufacturing ability, since the British were enforcing a blockade along the American coast the country was unable to get some much needed supplies i.e. cotton and cloth .Due to this shortage Americans were forced to manufacture the cloth of their own. This increased manufacturing in America. Also during the war of 1812 the British troops
The colony consisted of both men and women along with their children. This colony looked to be much more successful, but poor relations with the native tribes forced the colonists to rely on supplies that came in from England. They eventually developed trade between the once hostile Powhatan tribe. The timing of the English ships were inconsistent, but the needs of the colony were steady. One can see from the colonist’s situation why it would be appropriate to move away from the island and closer to their native trade partners.
Although the British believed in Mercantilism, America began trading with other countries during this period. The Mercantilism laws were no longer enforced, allowing colonies to establish their own relationships with other countries. Profitable trade routes were developed, such as the Triangular Trade. The colonies were also able to create and manage their own farms. As the amount of product that they produced increased, America’s
During the 1600’s the New World was composed of mostly English Settlers, yet many factors emerged that caused the Chesapeake and the New England colonies to develop into two very different societies. The cold, harsh weather of the New England colony contrasted heavily with the warm, temperate climate of the Chesapeake, cause the two colonies to have a completely different economy. Family played a very important role for the settlers in New England while in the Chesapeake families were scarcely seen. The strict way of life of the Congregational Church of New England was almost the opposite of the more lenient Anglican Church of the Chesapeake. People began to adapt to their regions and looked for ways to survive and benefit from the geography that they lived in.
Elites in different regions slowly developed a common lifestyle and sense of common interests. But rather than thinking of themselves as distinctively American, they became more and more English—a process historians call “Anglicization.” Wealthy Americans tried to model their lives on British etiquette and behavior. Somewhat resentful at living in provincial isolation—“at the end of the world,” as one Virginia aristocrat put it—they sought to demonstrate their status and legitimacy by importing the latest London fashions and literature, sending their sons to Britain for education, and building homes equipped with fashionable furnishings modeled on the country estates and town houses of the English gentry. Their residences included large rooms for entertainment, display cases for imported luxury goods, and elaborate formal gardens. Some members of the colonial elite, like George Washington, even had coats of arms designed for their families, in imitation of English upper-class
