The average vikings used swords and axes in battle.
The vikings went crazy in battle so the swords and axes were perfect for cutting and slashing at the enemy, armored or not.
What did they look like? Describe a warrior's armour and weapons. This question was wast to do, because the information was easy to describe.
They wore what they could of
afforded, it all depended on the wealth. Women usually wore dresses that were made out of silk
and expensive fabrics and materials. Although men usually stayed in long shirts and pants/trousers. Their armor was very protective and heavy, yet
they could still be able to fight as they wo
Spanish Conquest
Middle Ages
Ottoman Empire
1492 - 1572
Spanish Conquest
Japanese Shogunate
Class System
The Emperor was at the head of the class system but had no real power, they were controlled by the shogun. He was confined to the palace grounds and was basically a puppet.
The viking shield
The shield was very important
to the vikings as it is their main
defense in combat. Majority of
shields were made of wooden planks
cut in a circular shape but the richer viking
may have been able to afford iron shields.
Shogun protected the nation against foreigners. The Shogun was the real power behind the throne. He ruled the country by creating the laws. As the maker of these laws, the Shogun was not subject to many of them. The Shogun also ruled the Emperor.
Daimyos owned land and were regulated by the Shogun, they were only allowed to get married with the Shogun's permission. They were only allowed to socialize in their district to prevent plotting. To be kept from becoming too rich and powerful, they had to pay for repairs to forts, roads and castles.
Samurai were the warriors of Shogunate Japan, they were trained in Bushido and highly skilled in martial arts. Many were excellent poets and painters.
Farmers made up 80% of the Japanese population, most were below the level of poverty. Their homes and lifestyle depended on the amount of rice they grew.
Even though Merchants and Artisans were lowest on the feudal ladder, they were very wealthy and at times even wealthier than the Samurai. They were spied upon by Daimyos and the Shogun and had to be very cautious with traders. they were not allowed to mix with other classes except on business matters.
Feudal System
The viking
The richer and smarter would be offered jobs like doctors so treating the poor and the weak. The Middle class people would get jobs like merchants and tax collectors. The merchant would travel to other places like Europe to sell items. Then you have the military which would fight for their people and for their religion. Then you had the farmers and herders which would provide food and animals for cities to live off of. By Tom
The average viking wore Armour of overlapping metal plates worn on the shoulders. These successfully protected slashing attack to the neck. Another common piece of Armour was chain mail which consisted of thousands of tiny metal rings put together and they protected against slashing attacks to the body. Vikings were quite vulnerable to stabbing but the ferocity of the viking warriors insured that not very people had time to stab as they were under an extremely intense attack themselves. Vikings also charged the enemy so archers had to hit a moving target and they wouldn't be able to shoot many arrows before they were up close and personal with the vikings. The helmet was also very important as it protected the head from swords, axes and arrows.

The Lord
What technology did they discover? – Leonardo Da Vinci was interested in mechanics and he had ideas that no one had thought of before. He drew up plans for an airplane, helicopter and a parachute. Occasionally he worked as an engineer and designed tanks, machine guns and bridges that could move.
Some other technology discovered/advanced in this Era is;
Printing press
Slitting mill – This mechanized the production of iron rods for nail making
Blast furnace – enabled iron to be produced in substantial quantities
Smeltmill – Increased the output of lead over previous ways.
Map of Europe - Question1
Question 2
Question 2 picture
Question 5
What person or figurehead was in charge of the civilization? – This question was very hard to answer for our era seeing as Europe is so big. After discussion with the teacher we decided to study a person who was involved a lot during this era, Leonardo Da Vinci.
Da Vinci wasn’t just interested in mechanics; he was also interested in the human body. He even dissected dead people so he could study bones and other parts of the body. He also made drawings to show how the body worked. Like many other artist, he was interested the in proportions of the human body.
Apart from all this Leonardo also liked nature and the growth of plants. He tried to find out what made birds fly. Later on, he started writing books on many of these topics, but he never completed them. When they were discovered centuries later, they showed that Da Vinci was much ahead of his time.
The Khmer people weren't known for their inventions but they did build the largest temple in the world, Angkor Wat. One of the great achievements of the Khmer Empire is the structure of the Angkor Wat. The Angkor Wat is built in Angkor (which is the capital city of the Khmer Empire). It was built as a shrine, an observatory and a funerary temple. Researchers say that it took nearly 30 years to complete and was finished in time for the death of an important king (Suryavarman II).
The Angkor Wat
Mongol Empire
Class system
The Mongol Empire had a four class system. The Mongolians were at the very top, Semu were second, Han were third and southerners were fourth. Punishment depended on where you were on the class system. The Han and Southerner class werent allowed to possess weapons or raise any dogs or eagles.
If You Found This Look behind You >:)
What Great Achievement did the Khmer Empire civilization achieve?
Most days, Samurai would wear Kimonos. In battle, they would wear armor made of steel or iron plates sewn together with silk. They also wore padding to prevent damage when the armor was hit. They wore fibreglass masks meant to scare opponents and finally they wore winged vests. The weapons they used were mainly katanas as they were the symbol of the samurai. They would also use another blade called a Wakizashi, the combination of the two was called a Daisho. If nessecary, they would use a dagger called a Tanto to commit suicide by disembowelment. The weapon of choice was mainly a bow called a Yumi.
The Empire was divided into areas and districts which was appointed by the king. The king was at the top of the social classes and had power over everything. Priests were close to nobility and had a sacred position. Scholars, poets, astrologers and astronomers were members of the society. Warriors and farmers formed the largest classes. Slaves are the lowest of the social class, and consisted of debtors, prisoners of war and hill tribesmen.
The Khmer people originated in Cambodia Its total landmass is 181,035 square kilometers. Cambodia is bordered by Thailand to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Vietnam to the east and the Gulf of Thailand to the southwest. The Capital is Phnom Penh language Khmer language.
Social Class
Mongol Empire
The Mongol Empire was the largest Empire in history.
The Mongols owned the majority of land from South East Asia to Eastern Europe, which covered about 12.7 million square miles. The capital city was called Karakorum and other cities included Beijing, Persia and Moscow.
Mongolian Warrior and clothing
The Mongolian warriors were fierce and well schooled in the art of war. They were deadly accurate archers and horse riders. The mongols were highly feared by opponents and considered lethal.

The armour of the Mongol troops was a mix of materials, based on foundation layers of boiled and hardened leather. Steel plates would be added for extra strength in the chest and other parts of the body like the boots and arms. A mix of light and heavy armour would give the Mongols protection against various attacks, while allowing them the flexibility they required to handle their bows.

A long, ankle length robe called a caftan was worn by the entire population. The material that it was made out of, and the colour and design depended on the social status you held. They used cotton, silk, brocade, fur, leather and wool.

Did they have a class system? What were the classes? What did each class do?
Map of Khmer
Where are they from?
The kings exerted considerable power, but it was rarely the case that any of them was truly the sole ruler of all the Khmer's. The king's main duties were to ensure the prosperity of his kingdom and the reign of Dharma, the rules which ordain world order and the harmony of all beings. It is clear that powerful nobles also existed, and although they were the king's vassals they were undoubtedly the lords of their own domains.
Much like the men, the women wore colorful kimonos and platform shoes made of wood. The shoes were called Getas and were used to keep the bottom of the kimono from getting dirty.
All farmers and peasants could only afford one piece clothing which resembled potato sacks. even the children of lower class had to wear these 'sacks'.

By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a large portion of Central Asia and China.

Only the king can wear materials with a full pattern of flowers on it. Senior officials and relatives of the king can wear cloth with a floral pattern. Khmer's warriors wore little or no armor at all during war, but this gives them the ability of speed and agility. Spears and shields were the main weapons used, but they also used swords. Their main weapon though was the warrior himself, they were taught Bokator and wrestling.
