Axum was in a prime location for trade
It became an international trading power

Axum reached its height in 325-360 A.D. under Ezana
Akumites believed in one god, Mahrem
Axum converted to Christianity when Ezana came to power
Islamic invaders conquered huge amounts of land between 632-750A.D.
As Islamic invaders conquered more and more land the Christian settlements became more isolated Textbook On the Axum "Columbia Project on Asia in the core curriculum; Asian in western and world history; A guide for teaching" - Ainslie T. Embree and Carol Gluck Textbook On The Bantu The text book "World History: Patterns of Interaction" does NOT give enough information from civilizations in Africa to civilizations in Asian and Europe. The material not given in the book about these civilizations are a huge part of why they progressed and failed in different ways than others. Although the book does give the same amount of detail for Mongol as any other resource. The book covers Mongol Empire in depth but unfortunately not the others.

1473- Took Djenne (a trade city) and married its queen
To take Djenne, Sunni surrounded the city with his army for 7 years before it fell.
Askia Muhummad- After Sunni died, his son took over for him.
Immediately he faced rebelling Muslims complaining about not practicing their religion enough (Leader of the revolt was Askia)
He soon drove out Sunni's son and turned out to be a good administrator and made an efficient tax system. (Ruled for 37 years)
Songhai empire lacked modern weapons. (They had swords while everyone else had guns.)
Falll of Songhai ended a 1000 year period where kingdoms/empires ruled central West Africa. Textbook On The Songhai Wendi stated himself as the first emperor of the Sui Dynasty

This book is meant for a much older audience How Is Africa Significant to Us? Africa has influenced our daily lives in more ways then we know. The earliest civilization dates back to Africa and without that we wouldn't even be here right now. Trade was also a huge part of why Africa and Europe we're able to grow. If Africa was unable to trade with Europe, Europe would not have been able to found and fund the explorations to discover America. Africa's basic technology they used back then is still used today. Africa's way of trading are the basics of our day to day shopping experiences. In more ways then one Africa is the foundation to our day to day life. How Has Africa Influenced Our Daily Lives Today?

Nowadays France, Switzerland, Belgium, and The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, and parts of Austria and Spain were all under the control of Charlemagne The Incans only lasted about 100 years
They had up to 12 million people
They ruled with great efficiency because of the intricate highway system
The roads backfired when the spanish used them to get to the heart of the civilization 700's Ghana had become a kingdom
Ghana began growing due to taxation towards traders who crossed through their territory
Trading of gold and salt were most important
Ghana had miners who dug shafts for gold and salt
800 Ghana had become an empire thanks to kings, a large army, taxes, and gifts from other surrounding places
Ghana had Islamic influences even to the extent of Ghana's rulers even changing over to Islam by the 11th century Bantu language comes from one of the hundreds of languages in the Niger-Congo
The Bantu language is the first language of 1/3 of all Africans
People who migrated in small groups to South Africa were the "Bantu-speaking peoples.
The "Bantu-speaking peoples" originated in Nigeria.
Starting from 2000 years ago, Bantu speakers began moving south and east.
Farming techniques required them to move around.
Technique is called slash and burn- a patch of forest is cut down and burned and the ashes mix into the soil making it fertile for only a short period of time.
As they moved they adapted different skills and became more advanced.
Moving east, the started herding sheep, goats, and cattle.
Bantu most likely brought the tech. of iron smelting with them.
They moved into places with high and low populations. (The BaMbuti and San)
They faced many differences while moving, like territory battles, different languages, methods of living, and adapting to the area. Mongols and Chinese decided to keep their identities separate, laws different, and living spaces apart
During the rule of Kublai Khan the trade routes prospered because Mongols were peaceful
Trading iteams for other iteams from the chinease such as printing, gunpowder, the compass, paper currency, and playing cards
When Kublai Khan's rein was coming to an end the empire slowly fell
Khan sent many people on risky explorations to different places in an attempt to expand there land but many lives were lost
Khan's army strength slowly decreased as they lost many battles
Yuan dynasty overthrown when Khan died in 1294
With the fall of the Yuan dynasty a domino effect hit the Mongol Empire which then died also This book is meant for a much older audience Africa is significant to the United States because Africa basically laid down the foundation for any civilization/country we have today. It gave us the basics to war, religion, language, trade, and food, which is what it takes to survive so without Africa we would have had a lot larger of a struggle.
