Caution: This will be a bumpy ride. The Adventure to History 700's 300 C.E. From about 618-907, the Tang Dynasty was up and running, starting to trade right away. The Tang Dynasty began to develop as they started trading with merchants from other countries. Tang emperors sent some merchants to go on junks and depart to India, Arabia, and Europe to trade products like silk, rice, tea, jade, and porcelain. In return, the Chinese would receive loads of indigo, spices, silver, ivory, and coal. Some outcomes of trading are that they had the highest group of people living in China and it resulted growing the merchant class. During the 300's in the Common Era, there were problems in the Late Roman Empire. The main problems were political instability, economic and social problems, and weakening frontiers. A little later, Germanic tribes made it worse, by pressing hard into the borders. During 400 to 500 B.C.E, the camels allowed traders to use caravan routes across the Sahara looking for gold, ivory, grain, and salt. Many of the gold were being mined into Roman coins in North Africa, that the gold was from West Africa. Many Roman gold coins were being found in Zimbabwe and South Africa, maybe not the Romans carried these coins into the area, but the traders of India had contact with South Africa and was possible that they were Roman-Indian traders. The legacy of the Roman philosophy, law, and citizenship were influenced by the Greeks. Some laws from the Roman empire greatly influenced us to this day. The Romans had a philosophy called Stoicism. This was to believe in godly intelligence. For law and justice, Romans covered marriages, contracts, etc. Stoicism lasted till 476 C.E. 500 C.E. During 500 C.E., many people in Ghana knew that gold had been a symbol of wealth. In Ghana's empire, people from Italy and in Muslim lands made so much gold coins. The Wangarans continued to trade and commerce gold, where the gold is plentiful. 500's Because of the Korean Peninsula, cultural ideas were capable of spreading. For instance, Confucianism spread in Japan when a Chinese scholar came to Japan, with the help of the Korean Peninsula. Also in the mid 500's, Buddhism was introduced to Japan when Buddhist priests from the Korean Peninsula came to Japan. During 593, Prince Shotoku gained control and caused access for Japan to receive cultural influences on India, China, and Korea. They often sent many people to travel to China, and when they returned, the Japanese expected them to have knowledge on some of their mainland culture. 593 Around 515 C.E., Muhammad wanted to preach about God to the Makkans, and he stated they should worship one God (monotheism). Islam was a religion that began in the Arabian peninsula, and spread through Asia, Spain, and etc. Basically, Islam spread throughout the world. 515 C.E. China had open door policies on trade and the Han dynasty started the trade. Later the Tang Dynasty made travel safe again, by taking control of Central Asia. As a result, trade flourished with Central Asian Kingdoms, Persia, and the Byzantine Empire. 618-907 Between 639 and 708 C.E., Arab Muslims attacked North Africa. Before long, they wanted to bring West Africa into the Islamic religion. But sending armies to conquer Ghana was not productive. Ghana was too isolated, and it was protected by the Sahara dessert. 639-708 C.E. In the 7th century, new techniques of sculpture came to Japan from Korea and China. However, the Japanese kept some of their own artistic talents to keep their art original. If Korean, Chinese, and Japanese art were to compare, each of them contain certain differences, especially in texture. 7th Century 750 C.E. Islam was accepted as early as 850 C.E. by the Dya'ogo dynasty of Kingdom of Tekur. They were the first Negro people who accepted Islam. Trade and commerece paved the way for the introduction of new elements of material culture, and made possible the intellectual development which naturally followed the introduction and spread of literacy. 850 C.E. Overtime the Japanese adapted some Chinese characters to develop their own language. They first used kanji, or Chinese writing, to write Japanese words. By 900 C.E., Japanese invented "kana," which was the simplified writing for the Chinese. 900 C.E. Between 1000 and 1700 C.E., Islam caused West Africa to experience an increase in trade and economic activity, the rise and fall of several Islamic states and empires and provided new practices to be blended with the traditional African culture. 1000-1700 C.E. 618-907 C.E. 400-500 B.C.E. 476 C.E. 12th Century During the 12th century, India's Buddhist culture developed the Zen and Amida, which later became two training types. Later, in Japan, samurais used this to train their minds. 2000 B.C.E. During the Classical Period, the Mayans were highly influenced by the Olmec tradition by their techniques of building by building enormous temples and palaces. Also, using the knowledge they knew from the Olmec of Astronomy, they charted movements of the moon, stars, and planets by 2000 B.C.E. During 750 C.E., Muslims ruled Spain, North Africa, the Middle East, and a huge portion of central Asia. A lot of cultural influences came into the region over the next 500 years. Arabs, Persians, Turks and other cultures helped unite the Islamic civilization. 8th Century During the 8th century, the Muslims established an Arabic Language, and shared the language in exchange of ideas and one another's work to Europe, North Africa, and Middle East. In 146 B.C.E, when Rome conquered Greece, it has been influenced and amazed by the art they have interwovened. Many rich conquests of Rome began to inspire the Greek art tradition to paint their walls and decorate their courts with sculptures. The Romans looked towards the Greek religion, as they continued to see into the way their religion has been sculpted, so the Romans copied the Greek gods and godesses statues. 146 B.C.E By: Aprille Alindogan Cathrina Cabato
Maritza Vasquez & Norlyn Galang Throughout the 700's, the Muslim empire began to expand. Some Umayyad caliphs sent armies to enter central Asia and northwestern India, but later, during 711, Muslim armies began to fullfill their conquests by going to present-day Spain. There, they took over some parts of their land. Muslims held on to the land for almost 800 years, which is why there are some Muslim states. Credit Slide Thanks to :
