Transcript of 3.04 Central And South American Legacies And Contributions

The Quipu were messages encoded on lengths of strings that were knotted. Runners brought these knotted messages from town to town. They used the system of Incan Roads that were widely used by other runners, too. The Incas constructed roads that were connected to the empire. Using these roads, runners brought quipu messages through parts of the empire and the roads. The roads were helpful to Cuzco to retain control of the empire, but had also helped the Spanish to conquer the territory. The Quipu Incan Roads Codices and Glyphs Codices were paper books that were made by the Mayans or other ancient civilizations. Scholars began using codices to save small amounts of glyphs. These glyphs were carved on stones. Religious Calendars A huge number of GODS were worshipped in the Aztec religion on a daily basis. The Aztecs had several ritual calendars that were usually filled with ceremonies for each GOD. Those ceremonies were not only religious but fun and entertaining for the population. Roman Numerals Roman numerals were widely used by europeans to do math. They were very useful for writing long dates and for arithmetic. Roman numerals were usually in codices or carved in stones. 3.04 Central And South American
