Units One and Two Review
increased pop. density, led to the rise of cities
created specialized jobs and social inequalities (based on wealth, gender)
required organized govts. and urban planning
increased technology (irrigation, pottery, metallurgy, wheels, math/science knowledge)
writing systems developed (cuneiform, hieroglyphics, Phoenician alphabet)
more stable food supply--> longer life spans, pop. growth
Paleolithic Age = "Old Stone Age"
began to manipulate the environment (ex- fire)
developed stone tools
small nomadic tribes, little gender or social inequality, few possessions
survived off of hunting and gathering or pastoralism
early religious beliefs (mostly animistic and tied to nature)
Neolithic Revolution
Shift to agriculture
Remember that most early civs began near river valleys!
Law Codes: Hammurabi's Code (Babylon/Mesopotamia), "eye for an eye", protection of private property
Organized govts (often tied to religion): pharoahs, Mandate of Heaven

Gupta Empire
Most important leader was Ashoka
converted to Buddhism, encouraged its spread into SE Asia
ruled with tolerance toward Hinduism, allowed both religions to co-exist peacefully

engaged in trade w/ Middle East, China, and the Roman Empire (mainly spices and cotton)

inherited strong Hindu traditions from Aryan invaders, though Buddhism became popular among lower castes, Hinduism remained prominent
"Golden Age of Hindu Culture"

concept of pi and 0
decimal system
Numerals 1-9 (later called Arabic numerals)
surgery textbooks
Sanskrit poetry (tied to Hindu beliefs)

reduced status of women, caste system remained intact

Collapsed due to invasions from the neighboring White Huns, Hinduism provides stability
Note: These two empires were anomalies- India's political tradition was one of regional rule and decentralization
Qin dynasty
Han dynasty
Shi Huangdi took control after "Era of Warring States" following collapse of Zhou dynasty.
created unified, well-organized empire
Legalist philosophy- strict rules and punishments
began construction on Great Wall

Mostly agricultural, much more isolated than India and the Med.

patriarchal, few rights for women

Collapsed after rule of Shi Huangdi
maintained organized bureaucracy, developed civil service examination to assign govt. jobs (based on Confucianism)

secular philosophies vs religions (Conf, Daoism, Legalism), spread of Buddhism via trade connections w/ India

trade thrived during this time (Silk Roads), connections w/ India, Middle East, and the Roman Empire

Collapsed due to internal and external factors (similar to Rome)- overextension, high taxes, peasant rebellions, outside invasions
Confucianism helped maintain stability after the collapse, though.
conquered earlier ancient civs, extended from India to Egypt
satrapies- regional provinces, left alone as long as they paid taxes to the empire
ruled w/ tolerance as they conquered other regions/cultures
built Royal Road to connect empire
qanat system allowed irrigation in desert

overextension --> hard to control/maintain
--> vulnerable to attack --> Alex the Great

democratic govt.- direct democracy in Athens
art&architecture- idealism, symmetry
literature- dramas/plays (gives us info about their rel beliefs and daily life)
philosophy- Socrates, Plato, Aristotle
limited technology compared to China (b/c they had more slaves)

transitioned from republic to empire in 30BCE, controlled entire Med. Sea at its height, used citizenship as reward for loyalty, used military and roads to unite empire

copy/pasted Greek culture, Christianity introduced, and persecuted at first. Eventually tolerated, and then accepted as official religion near empire's collapse.

patriarchal (paterfamilias- similar to Ch and In), large slave labor force

internal+external factors (like China)- tensions w/ Christianity, overexpansion, political instability, high taxes, rebellions, invasions from barbarian tribes)

West collapsed, East survived (Byzantine Empire)
Indian Ocean-
diffused Buddhism to SE Asia
syncretism- Buddhism adapted to local customs as it spread
Dependent on monsoon winds
Led to creation of dhow ships and lateen sails
