This could infer that the Amesbury Archer may have been living in the local area for quite some time.

The rivers Volga and don flow contrariwise, away from St Petersburg and Moscow, which as population grew, desperately needed the grain from the fertile south and later iron for industry.

The peasants made up around 80% of the population of China, and they were mainly farmers with little of anything ? land, possessions, or money.

  9. To What Extent Does History show that there is no such thing as absolute power?

    King Tutankhamen was made a pharaoh after his father king Akhenaten (formerly Amenhotep IV) and ascended the throne in 1333BC at the age of nine years old. The argument over history that a leader could have absolute power is during the 18th Dynasty when Akhenaten and Tutankhamen ruled which can be proven by ?despotism? which was the unlimited power and authority of Pharaoh?s and is further promoted by the Egyptian peoples viewing the ruling pharaoh as a god, the sun of the sun-god Ra, and not merely a representative but an incarnation of the falcon-headed god to be the successor of Osiris.

  10. All through the 18th century to the 20th century the long distance migrations played a major role on continuities and changes throughout the entire world

    In the 1700's the slave trade that kept growing and become very large. In the 19th century the transport of Africans started to decrease because slaves were reproducing at high numbers and people began setting abolitionist movements within the Americas. Therefore, by the 19th century, there were some clear changes in the purpose of the migration. However, many people still moved from Europe to America for religious freedom and to start a new life. By the 20th century the slave trade and the triangular trade was technically nonexistent but there still was a large amount of European migration to the Americas fleeing away from their poor conditions which shows the continuity of the migration even for different reasons.

  11. How far do you agree that the peculiar method of Ottoman succession was ultimately detrimental to Ottoman power?

    The peculiar method of Ottoman succession was detrimental to Ottoman power because each son would gather supporters to support them throughout their provincial governorships, and this in turn meant that when the Sultan passed away, the sons would rally the people, and use them against each other, cause revolts and strikes, making the country chaotic. The consequences were even worse when one of the sons started killing their brothers/half-brothers in order to claim the throne as quickly as they could as it would cause more discontent between the people.

  14. Evalute the importance, strengths and weaknesses of the Spartan Army

    This developed an extremely capable war force in which one Spartan warrior had the ability ?to take on three Greeks? [4]alone, showing that one of the most predominant Spartan strengths was the well trained nature of all Spartiates. However in having a training system so far advanced that the skills and warfare knowledge of the average soldier mirrored those of an official, contradictions arose as lower ranked captain?s disobeyed orders based on their own interpretations of the field.
