  3. 3.  The Huns were a powerful race of nomadic pastoral people from Mongolia. They appeared from beyond the Volga a Russian river and headed into Europe. They were very barbaric people. There main leader was Attila the Hun, and with his control the Huns conquered most of Asia and some of eastern Europe The Huns aliened with the Xiognu a tribe near Ancient China.

  5. 5.  The average Huns where usually away from there villages, so there houses were not very big or very well made. Most people would have to fight in war so it was the women and children in the houses. There houses were not made of much, usually a hut made of dead animal skins. When the Huns traveled they only made shelter if it was extremely necessary, because they would only stay in a spot for around a night. There traveling houses would only be made of a few levees.
  6. 6.  In those times the king was the wealthiest person in the whole country. They had lots of money so they could afford more expensive things. The kings had gold had lived in large palaces'. The Palaces were very colourful and beautiful. This is a drawing of how the palace of Attila the Hun might have been like
  7. 7.  The river teemed with different types of fish, for example, catfish, mullet,. This article describes basic food and drink commonly consumed in Ancient Huns. Usually the Huns where on the go and had to hunt animals like deer. The hunted fish, and other animals with there spears. The Huns moved around all across Europe and Asia eating different things along the way that they could cook. The Huns would also steal Picture of a different foods from places and people that they Cat Fish defeated of concord. The also got food from domesticating animals like goat and sheep. They ate things like berries two.
  8. 8.  In those times the man always had the first say. If you are the eldest boy in the family you are the head of the household next to your father of course. Girls didn't live a very good life, because they were the people who always worked and didn't get a lot of credit. They first had to obey their father, then their husband, and finally their eldest son.The main household rule was that children should obey their parents at all times. If poor families were desperate they sometimes had to sell their daughters to be servants or slaves to the rich.
  9. 9.  The man would always pick who to get married to, and usually the women had to except, unless she was a queen, or a rich women. The Huns did Levirate marriage in which the brother of a deceased man is obligated to marry his brother's widow, and the widow is obligated to marry her deceased husband's brother. The male was in charge of the female, so he picked what happened to her and what to do with her. There was no divorce with the Huns, but if a man hated his wife so much, he would kill her. The Huns did not so dowries, because they were so barbaric.
  10. 10.  When children are born they must do many birth rituals that will scare and injure the baby. Some babies are killed in the birth rituals, because the rituals test how tough the babies is. The rituals would include leaving the baby alone for a day or so in a forest. People only wanted the strongest babies. Every Hun valued boys, more girls because they were stronger. (No affiance ladies )
  11. 11.  Childhood was very brutal for the Huns. Just when born, a child would go throw many horrible birth rituals. At a young age children where trained for war, and in a year or so the kids would go to war. The kids had no real parenting. The young girls would stay at there huts, and prepare food for the men.
  12. 12.  Childhood in Canada is easier. There is hardly any stress in your life. Kids in the Huns do not have a very good life. Sometimes they are sold to rich people in order for their family to live. In the Huns kids do a lot of work, not just for their parents but also for other people. Early in a Huns child life they would have to go to war. In Canada it’s not like this.
  13. 13.  The only education the Huns probably had was battle and military training. War was a large part of the Huns culture. Also the Huns had no written history. The Huns may have been taught other languages to communicate with allies.
  14. 14.  The Huns religion was very unusual The Huns made sacrifices to fire and water and to certain gods of the roads, and to the moon and to all creatures considered in their eyes to be in some way remarkable. It is known that they had shamans or wizards slightly similar in their tribe, specialized in the prophecy from the examination and of remains bones of animals.
  15. 15.  For the people of the Huns the main rulers and the most powerful people where like the gods two the them. Attila the Hun was the main god of the Huns . He was the most ruthless and powerful god of them all. People would pray to them to solve there problems, and people were very scared of him. Even when Attila the Hun died people still honoured him because they were scared of his soul.
  16. 16.  People in Huns generally wore tunics (like long t-shirts). Women wore long tunics down to the ground, with belts, and men wore shorter ones down to their knees. Sometimes they wore jackets over their tunics. In the winter, when it was cold, people wore padded jackets over their tunics, and sometimes pants under them. In early China, poor people made their clothes of hemp or ramie. Rich people wore silk. In war people wore armour, and padding made of animal skin
  17. 17.  The Huns had quite a bit of different arts. A large part of the Huns art was shaping armour. War and concerning where very important for the Huns so many of the Huns would try to design the best armour, which was a kind of artsy thing. The women of the Huns made lots of gold, silver and fancy ear orderments and jewellery. The jewellery that the Huns made where created from all sorts of rare minerals. The Huns were not very interested in music, and painting so there was very few of it. They did quite a bit of painting of rocks and minerals
  18. 18.  Alban Eiler ("Light of the Earth") is the Huns fire festival of the year, celebrating the return of the Sun and the vibrant rousing of life after Winter. as the Huns did not leave written records and they were very secretive about the priestly practice.
  19. 19.  The Huns concerned many ancient civilizations, but they could not control everything, so they were defeated. They were a large empire that was to blood thirsty so they fell. Even though that we seem to know lots about the Huns, and even though it seems like we no a lot the is probably still more to learn a bout this once powerful civilization.
