AP World History -- Locating world history in the environment and time

  1. 1. Locating world history in the environment and time Geography and humanity, environment as catalyst for human events, major population changes/migrations, periodization, continuities and breaks from pre-Neolithic era, Neolithic Revolution and gender
  2. 2. Time Period <ul><li>8000 B.C.E to 600 C.E </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The longest unit of the five commonly known as the Foundations Period . </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Time Period <ul><li>Periods are framed by major events. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>8000 B.C.E = Neolithic Revolution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>600 C.E. = Fall of the Classical Empires </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Western Roman Empire, Han Dynasty, Gupta Dynasty, Sassanid Empire </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>600 C.E. = Rise of New Empires </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Carolingian Empire, Sui and Tang Dynasties, Indian Regional Kingdoms, Islamic Empire </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>600 C.E. = New Religions (great expansion) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Christianity/Orthodox, Islam, Buddhism </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>600 C.E. = Increased trade and integration between societies </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Places <ul><li>The national exam will require you to know what nations, states, or empires are encompassed in what regions for both the multiple choice questions and the three essays. While it is impossible to list every country in every region, the most commonly misidentified nations and their regions are: </li></ul>
  5. 5. Places <ul><li>North Africa </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Places <ul><li>West Africa </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, Benin </li></ul></ul>

  15. 15. Geography and humanity in the Foundations <ul><li>The climate of the Earth is constantly changing. </li></ul><ul><li>10,000 years ago the Earth was much cooler than it is today. </li></ul><ul><li>Around 9,000 B.C.E the temperature increases greatly (global warming?) </li></ul>
  16. 16. Geography and humanity in the Foundations <ul><li>As the Earth got warmer regions of massive human occupation dried out (Sahara region). </li></ul><ul><li>This caused: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plants to die </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Animals to leave </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Food to become scarce </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Geography and humanity in the Foundations <ul><li>People moved around the globe to other regions with the animals. </li></ul><ul><li>Eventually, the populations of people developed agriculture and settled near bodies of water. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Major population changes/migrations <ul><li>Most Homo Sapiens Sapiens , pre-10,000 B.C.E resided in and around Tanzania. </li></ul><ul><li>After 8,000 B.C.E they were all over Afroeurasia. </li></ul><ul><li>The societies that developed farming found this to be a much more reliable form of food production. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Major population changes/migrations 100 million 500 B.C.E 50 million 1000 B.C.E 27 million 2000 B.C.E 14 million 3000 B.C.E Human Population (estimate) Year Population Increase Over Time
  20. 20. Major population changes/migrations <ul><li>Biggest reason for demographic changes </li></ul><ul><li>FARMING </li></ul><ul><li>Nope! </li></ul><ul><li>Human Innovation (which includes farming :-p) </li></ul><ul><li>Innovation: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sedentary agriculture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pottery </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Metalworking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Textile production </li></ul></ul>
