2  Who is the founder of Islam?  What are the people who practice Islam called?  What are the 5 Pillars of Islam?  What is the holy city of Islam?  What is the Hajj?  How would you explain the term “culture” to a 5 year old? KNIGHT’S CHARGE

3 WEIRD DISNEY FACT OF THE DAY! Disney’s story of Peter Pan is about a young boy never wanting to grow up and a wonderful place called Neverland… The “actual” story of Peter Pan is about Death. Peter – Angel of Death Lost Boys – children who have died Never grow up – Dead Neverland – Heaven Not so fun anymore…

4  As time progressed in Ancient Societies, eventually, people began to come in contact with one another.  Contact was initiated for a number of different reasons. FIRST CONTACT

5  Culture = the way of life of a people or society, which has been handed down from generation to generation.  Cultures developed differently and separate from one another through the ages because of the distances between civilizations and the lack of communication. CULTURE

6  Cultural Diffusion = The spread of cultural traits through war and trade.  Examples of Cultural Diffusion: CULTURE

7  Differences in culture can be seen in language, art, architecture, etc. CULTURE

8 Staying away from other groups was what kept different cultures unique! CULTURE

9  The competition for resources would result in wars! CULTURE

10  The Persian Wars in Greece were examples of this.  The Persians began seeking new land and went after their neighbors…The Greeks.  The Spartans and Athenians united to fight the Persians and sent them away. PERSIAN WARS

11  Even though the Persians were defeated by the Greeks, they conquered an area over twice the size of the U.S.  By doing this, they “absorbed” many cultures into their own. CULTURE

12  Religion was also a motive for people from different areas to talk to one another.  Religions would spread.  Both Christianity and Islam would spread due to trade and wars as part of the culture. CULTURE

13 Islamic Empires would spread all over Africa, The Middle East, and Asia. CULTURE

14 Is global contact through war good or bad? Why? CULTURE

15  Alexander The Great conquered the largest area of land ever known and began an age of great achievement called the Hellenistic Age.  The Hellenistic Age brought us new inventions like surgeries, Science, etc. CULTURE

16  Alexander The Great was basically a celebrity during his time.  He was known for his “charisma” and “superhuman” ability to lead people.  Alexander had a bit of a god-complex (thought he was on the level of God). In fact, he was made a pharaoh after conquering Egypt.  He conquered Persia and was only “forced” to turn back in India by his own troops. CULTURE

17  The longest lasting accomplishment of Alexander The Great was the spread of Greek Culture to other parts of the world.  Hellenization = The spread of Hellenistic culture, or the mixing of Greek culture with the areas conquered by Alexander The Great.  Conquered people assimilated their culture with Greek culture. HELLENIZATION

18  Through Hellenization – many cultures combined.  Greek became a very common language.  Alexandria, Egypt became the cultural capitol of the world.  Alexander’s empire brought the world together, globally, under a shared culture. HELLENIZATION


20  Trade was another way that cultures contacted each other.  Trade was necessary because many cultures wanted things that were not found in their countries. TRADE

21  Silk Road – The first international trade network, developed by the Chinese.  The “silk road” was over 4,000 miles long.  Silk became more precious than gold. THE SILK ROAD

22  India became a trading hot spot because it was the only place that you could find spices like pepper and ginger.  People had been eating bland food their entire lives until they met Indians! INDIAN SPICES

23  Sadly, trade also spread some negative things around the world…  The Black Plague:  The Black Plague killed 1/3 of the people in Middle Age Europe. The disease was spread by ticks that were on rats that infested trade ships.  Bring Out Your Dead Bring Out Your Dead TRADE
