Social studies Unit 7 timeline By Tucker Raymond Jordan
Early American Civilizations A bone, a spear and a jade carved figure are the very first artifacts to finding out what went on before we all came along. An the reason where are looking for what was going on before we came along, is to find out what the first Americans were like. They (Archaeologists) are also trying to find out who lived in North America and South America around 40,000 B.C. and 1300 A.D.
Bering Strait <ul><li>Archaeologists believe that the first people to come to the Americas were hunters. These hunters crossed the Bering land bridge that connected Siberia and Alaska during many ice ages. Native Americans created tails that would make humans think that we were created in North America. Today the Bering bridge is under water, but that wasn’t the case around 33,000 and 10,000. </li></ul>
The Olmec <ul><li>The Olmec where the first American civilization to live on Mexico. The Olmec live Mexico between 1200 b.c. and 400 b.c. The Olmec also used their land for farming their food and crops. </li></ul>
Maya <ul><li>The Maya religion is located in Central America. It comes from Mesoamerica religion and is over two thousand years old, which means it existed before the Spanish settled in Central America. Today, the Maya religion is part Mesoamerica religion and part Roman Catholic religion. </li></ul>
Tiwanakans and Moche On the left of the slide you’ll see a picture of a birds eye view of the Tiwanakans and on the right of the slide you’ll see what is left a building. This doorway is all that’s left of the walls of a building on a small mound near the Kalasasaya. Much of the readily accessible masonry at the ruin. It was used to construct the Catholic church in the village. A nearby railroad bridge also has Tiwanaku stone. This is what all is left of the Tiwanaku's city in Peru.
Aztec On the left of the slide you’ll see a picture of the Aztec hieroglyphs and on the right of the slide you’ll see a Aztec corn snake. Languages similar to the Aztec language have existed in Central Mexico for 1400 years. As early as 600 A.D. languages known as Nahuan were spoken by people in the area. It is believed that these language came from the northern waves. The Common Corn Snake ( Elaphe guttata guttata ) lives in the southeastern United States , and is distinguished by having brownish-orange skin with orange/red saddles, the saddles having black borders, and usually a black and white underbelly.
Inca <ul><li>On the left of the slide you’ll see a picture of the Incan national dog called the hairless dog and on the right of the slide you’ll see a Incan skull with a diamond cut into it. </li></ul>Peruvians where crazy about their national dog, a bald and often toothless breed. Popular among Incan kings . An ancient Inca skull shows evidence of skull surgery known as trepanation. A new study of the skull finds that the procedure was performed rather often by the Inca, likely to treat injuries suffered during combat.
The arrival of the Spanish <ul><li>When Captain Hernando Cortes arrived on the Gulf Coast of Mexico, at what he would call Vera Cruz (True Cross), he entered a world which had been prepared to receive him. More accurately, it was a world prepared, though not yet willing, to receive his God. It was 1519 in the Year of Our Lord, but the fifth epoch according to the Aztec Sun Stone, which chronicled the history of the people who only recently had come to dominate central Mexico. </li></ul>
