HISTORY IS SHAPED
Transcript of HISTORY IS SHAPED
- Larger rivers also provided protection against invasion because it was difficult to transport a large army and its supplies across a wide, deep river.
-A river provides a fertile land,with a surplus of food.
3)Region next to a major river.
location plays a part in accessing markets and major trade centers.
-The lengthy coastline of Gujarat has several ports, which have been engaged in overseas trade since the 3rd B.C. Lothal was one such flourishing Harappan port.
- When you are next to the coastline ,with ports you can raise money through tolls and shipping services.
- If you have no access to the coast, not only do you miss out on these services, you have to transport everything by land, which is much more expensive.
-Temperatures also play a significant role in how Indian's settled the land in ancient times.Temperature can change your clothing and food.
- Climate of a region determines your daily lifestyle and your diet.If you are living in a region with rare rainfall you will have to work twice the amount as others.And you will have to rely heavily on the climate of region.
-It determines the trade also,which affects your economy.
Factors that affect the growth of a region
- Geography of a region determines whether groups of people have enough resources of their own or need to get them from others through trade or war.
-It determines what foods can be grown, what food and animals can be raised, whether there is sufficient water, how warm or cold it is. who people trade with, how they travel,their clothes,weapons used,how they solved conflicts, their inventions and their occupations.
HISTORY IS SHAPED BY THE
GEOGRAPHY OF A
= LESS OR MORE RESOURCES
Oil is the most obvious. Nobody is any doubt about how Saudi Arabia or UAE make their money. Among other advantages, gold and diamonds have helped South Africa build the most successful economy on the continent. These are all non-renewable resources – once they’re gone, they’re gone, but while stocks last there is wealth to be made.
Besides these there are renewable resources – forests, fish, stocks that, if correctly managed, will refresh themselves. Much South American development has been based on the Amazon rainforest, in natural rubber and then timber.
-Increases economy of country,makes it wealthier.
- Gold and diamonds have helped South Africa build the most successful economy on the continent.
- Renewable resources that, if correctly managed, will refresh themselves. Much of the South American development has been based on the Amazon rainforest, in natural rubber and then timber.
-The Himalayan ranges are also responsible for forcing the monsoon rains onto the northern plains of the subcontinent from June to September.
-Himalayan Mountains prevented invading forces and migration into the continent.
- Khyber Pass- Connected India to Asial and Kabul.
-The combination of weather and land features is important.
-The major cities of North Africa all lie to the north of the Atlas Mountains, an area of reliable rainfall. The area to the south of the mountains is home to the desert tribes and a different history and lifestyle.
-The natural disasters that have been caused can destroy poeple's lifestyles
-The combination of weather and land features is especially powerful.
-Indo-Gangetic plains, the gangetic and brahmaputra basin, the fertile land and heavy rain fall in that area made it as an important settlement for various kingdoms.
-Natural disasters caused can destroy monuments and peoples lifestyles.
The place which was rich in metallic resources, the Chotanagpur plateau had a lot of materials.
-As during early days weapons were made up of Iron, material requirements pushed the kingdoms to fight for such areas.
- Apart from making weapons, Iron was important for making agricultural tools.
Kerala has a history of spice trade with the west since tHE post Mauryan times.
-Its Malabar Coast saw a number of flourishing international ports, like Kochi . Kerala became the first region in the South Asia to witness trade with the Arabs.
-It also had interaction with China, as is evident from the use of Chinese fishing boats in coastal Kerala.
- On the west, Gujarat played an important role, as it had been the major trading point between the west . -The Gupta empire when it once lost possesion of the coastline its economy crumpled.
-Tamil Nadu has brought in the earliest literature of the land – the Sangam literature.
-Indian culture has been heavily influenced by Dharmic religions.
-Topography describes the heights and shapes of geographical elements.
-Natural barriers such as mountain ranges, oceans and large deserts limit human travel and isolate populations, thus restricting cultural exchanges.It can also affect the number of languages spoken in an area
Large bodies of water restricted access to other cultures until their were ships capable of sailing over large distances. After that, coastal areas became a common place of cultural exchange.
-Climate shapes what sort of agriculture is possible in a given area, how people dress, what sort of dwellings they build and how easily they travel.
-Natural vegetation impacts what type of culture develops in terms of cuisine and economy.
How geography affects culture
The Southern Region
· South of the Gangetic plain are highlands which rise to form the Vindhya range cutting across the middle of the subcontinent.
· This range is not very high, but had served historically as sufficient barrier between the northern and the southern parts of the subcontinent to result in two distinct cultures –
-the Vedic culture of the north and the Dravidian culture of the south.
· The Dravidian people of South India are of a different ethnicity than those of the north, and their languages and culture are likewise different.
