Sumerians from opposing cities were unable or unwilling to resolve conflicts over territory and the availability of water, and wars between cities erupted – wars the Sumerians saw as between their gods. In ancient times, warfare often resulted in the burning of cities and the taking of slaves. This is so important that I have added an ebook edition to this website for free reading and distribution. Kiln-firing technology also served the artists, as is apparent in advanced earthenware pottery made on wheels and elegantly painted.

Building monumental architecture such as pyramids and irrigation canals and cities takes planning, pretty sophisticated planning, in fact. Its writers created thousands of stories. Feel that Lord Hiranyagarbha, the ocean of Life, is gently rocking you on His vast bosom. It is they or rather he who couldn't trust me, or rather that something which I express, which I stand for. Much of the design and decoration of the Alhambra is symbolically oriented.

Almost 70% of German roads have no speed limit. 8. Bear in mind that in China, due to the impact of the Cultural Revolution, youth have had to process 50 years of Western music in ten years. Geologists have determined that the basalt used to make most of the monuments at San Lorenzo and La Venta came from the area of the Tuxtlas mountains. A mass ex tinction began when humans left Africa and may have even begun with ancestors of Homo sapiens, but it accelerated when that founder group of behaviorally modern humans left Africa 60-50 kya. �They quickly drove the largest megafauna on three continents to extinction, as well as the arctic mammoths of Eurasia and all other human species .� Once the inhabitable continents were filled with that founder group�s descendants, in at least two places and as many as nine, humans independently domesticated plants and animals.� The mass extinction continued with the Domestication Revolution, but in less spectacular fashion, usually via habitat destruction.� The increasing density of human populations became the primary factor in driving other species to extinction, which were often local extinctions.� Ancient Egypt and particularly Rome drove north-African megafauna to extinction, but there were few other notable mass extinctions until Europeans learned to sail the world�s oceans .� When they did, the greatest proportional demographic catastrophes since the extinction of all other human species began.� Those same three continents earlier robbed of their megafauna were quickly shorn of their human populations, who were replaced with Europeans in Australia and with Europeans and enslaved Africans in the Americas.� In the midst of that unprecedented disaster for Homo sapiens, England began to industrialize .� Although industrialization raised the human standard of living as never before, as the energy of hydrocarbon fuels was exploited on a large scale for the first time, it also enabled greater environmental devastation.� Hu manity has been turning forests into deserts since the first civilizations ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 ), and the only reason it has not gotten worse during the industrial era, at least in industrialized, nations, is because hydrocarbons instead of wood were burned. �The extinction of the passenger pigeon and the near-extinction of the bison, in the midst of history�s most spectacular deforestation, were indicative of the vast damage that industrialized peoples could inflict on Earth�s ecosystems.� Industrialization also accelerated Europe�s conquest of the world.� It conquered and subjugated African and Asian peoples, reducing them to effective slavery and further devastating the ecosystems.

There was a rush of `old friends' into that garden, enough to scare all the little birds away. Traditionally, anthropologists had studied folk ways in the little tradition. Or, white feminists create brilliant analyses of patriarchy coming from their European cultural experience, and then try to generalize this analysis to the relationships between men and women whose ancestral cultures originate in Africa, the Americas, Asia or Arabic world.
