Ancient Persian Empire(II)

History

The Persian Empire arose in the ancient country of the Iranian Plateau. The Persians belonged to a branch of the Indo-European language family. They moved from Central Asia to the southwest of the Iranian Plateau (Fars region) in the late 2000s BC. There were ten tribes (six farming and four animal husbandry). Once under the rule of Medes. The word Persia has been used for centuries, mainly in the West, to indicate a region of southern Iran that was formerly known as “Persis” and “Parsa”.Click Here For More.

During the Elam and Medes period (2700-550 years ago), Elam and Midi were not called Persia by Greeks, but they were an indispensable part of the history of the Persian region. The Medes, who belong to the Indo-European language family with Persians, settled in the northwest of the Iranian Plateau. The Persians came to the Iranian Plateau with the Medes. They settled in the southwestern part of the Iranian Plateau near the Persian Gulf. The Persians had ten tribes, six of which were engaged in agriculture and four in animal husbandry.

Politics

Ancient Persia is a typical example of the eastern autocracy. During the Empire period, slavery economy in Western Asia was further developed. Persian culture was mostly influenced by the culture of the Mesopotamia, using cuneiform characters, and plastic arts had higher achievements. The founders of the Persian Empire easily unified the Levant region politically within 25 years (about 550-525 B.C.) and took vigorous measures to achieve the peace and order it desperately needed.

The Ten Mysterious Historical Monuments in the World (IV)

Sphinx

It is generally believed that the Sphinx in ancient Egypt was used to guard the Pharaoh’s cemetery. It is a combination of wisdom and bravery, but some people have different understandings. This man is the great prophet of the United States, Edgar Casey. He began to predict again and again in 1933 that the Sphinx was not built by the ancient Egyptians, but came over from Daxizhou 10,000 years ago. Built by the Atlanteans.

When the Sphinx was more and more mysterious because of the increasingly diverse views of people, Edgar Casey, the American great prophet who was known for his accurate predictions, came out to announce his research: the Sphinx is not ancient. The Egyptians built it, but they were built by Atlantis who came from Daxizhou 10,000 years ago. This view came out, leading to an uproar, which invisibly added another aura to the statue. American scholars also found that in addition to the head, the entire lion body was flooded. According to historical records, Egypt has been plagued by seawater and the Nile River floods many times. The last major flood occurred around 10,000 BC. From this it can be inferred that if the Sphinx is exposed to water, it must have been built before the flood. According to this statement, the Sphinx should be built 10,000 years before BC.

6.Underwater sites in Japan

More than 20 years ago, a diver accidentally discovered an ancient ruin on the seabed of Japan and Nagano Island. These sites seem to have a history of 8,000 years, and many people initially thought that these sites were just the geographical structure of water carving. The building has carved signs at the bottom, and after underwater exploration, it is proven to be artificial. The most striking clue is the way these steps are formed, and it is clear that the flow cannot form steps.

 

7.Tiahuanaco

The Tiahuanaco site is a Bolivian Indian ancient cultural site. The original ancient city was built on the edge of the lake. Later, as the lake gradually receded, the site now found is 20 kilometers away from the lake. The Tiawanaco site is made up of megaliths weighing tens of tons or even hundreds of tons.

The Puerta del Sol is the most famous monument in the Tiawanaco ruins. It is carved from a monolith weighing about 10 tons. It is 3.84 meters wide, 2.73 meters high and 0.5 meters thick. During the summer solstice, the sun rises exactly along the central axis of the doorway, reflecting the rich astronomical knowledge of the Indians. The Puerta del Sol is one of the most famous monuments of ancient America and is an outstanding example of the culture of Tiwanaku.

The Acapana Pyramid is the largest building in the site. The bottom of the tower is rectangular in shape and is 180 meters long. The tower was built with the help of a small hill with stone blocks on the outer layer. There are several different forms of architectural relics on the top of the tower. There is also a building similar to an underground reservoir.

The Historical Culture of Canada(I)

The history of Canada is the history of immigrants. When the Indians and the Inuit did not come from Asia, Canada’s vast land was still desolate. Canada and Asia are separated by a shallow Bering Strait. Tens of thousands of years ago, the glaciers retreated and the waters receded. The Bering Strait became a natural land bridge connecting Jakarta. Asians entered Canada along this land bridge and gradually developed into Indian and Inuit, these two Canadian indigenous peoples.

 

These two peoples have been active in the history of Canada for thousands of years. They either collected, or farmed, or fished and hunt, creating a primitive civilization in production. Before the European colonial footprints did not step into their lives, Canada was still an area that was primitive but still calm and peaceful.

In the 15th century, Europe began a large-scale overseas expedition. In 1497, the Italian explorer John Cabot arrived in a “newly discovered land” by a British ship – New Foundland. He was surprised to find that the fish here were very dense, and the large groups of squid were densely packed around the ship, and a large squid could be caught by throwing an empty basket on the side of the ship. To this day, the Great Banks are still world-famous big fisheries.

Rich fishery resources naturally attract countless European fishermen. Some fishery bases have been established on the shore for the salmon caught in pickled and dried air. In addition to providing catfish products to Europe, these fishery bases also provide Europe with a variety of furs, especially precious beavers. The lucrative profits of the fishery and fur trade have made Canada a glistening magnet for Europeans, especially British and French immigrants.

 

In 1535, the French explorer Jacques Carter went deep into the Gulf of St. Lawrence and along the St. Lawrence River to the Great Lakes region of the Americas. Although the rushing waters of Montreal were blocking his westward advancement, he found something more valuable than the desolate land–the fur. This time, Jack Cartier used the name of the local Huron Yishangkui village and residence – “Kanata” to name the area he found, and later the name is increasingly wide spread, eventually evolved into the name of Canada. A district in Ottawa is still named after Kanata.

 

The St. Lawrence Valley is rich in fur. After Jack, a large number of French fur merchants flocked, and the French king gave the colonial founders an attractive fur trade privilege. These French fur acquisition places were continued to build in the river basin. The St. Lawrence River gradually became the French colonial sphere of influence, and the French people kindly referred to this rich region as “New France.” At the same time, the Britain depended on its naval force to step up build more fur acquisition places on the coast. Although the contradiction between the colonial of Britain and French were still existed, the colonial structure in French inland and British shores can make them in peace.

The Culture of Elizabeth Tower

The Elizabeth Tower was designed by Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin and was built by Edward Dent and his son Frederick. The Elizabeth Tower was installed on the clock tower in 1859. The Elizabeth Tower is the second largest clock in the world that faces four directions. The inscription on each of the clock faces is engraved with a Latin inscription. “God, please bless the safety of our Queen Victoria I.”

The clock weighs 13.5 tons and the dial has a diameter of 7 meters. The hour and minute pointer are 2.75 meters and 4.27 meters respectively, and the pendulum weighs 305 kilograms. The Elizabeth Tower is a bell tower in the north of the Houses of Parliament in London, England. The Elizabeth Tower is famous for its accuracy and its huge 13-ton bronze clock for timekeeping.

Clock tower

Known as the “Big Ben”, the “Clock Tower” is located on the banks of the River Thames. It was built in 1859 and is 96 meters high. It is part of the British Parliament building. This 96-meter-tall tower, built in 1859, is surrounded by four gold-plated clocks. The name of the tower depends on the giant clock that placed in it – Big Ben. “Big Ben” has 393 steps from the bottom of the tower to the top of the tower. Conservative Party leader Cameron, Liberal Democrat leader Craig and Labor Party leader Miliband took the lead in supporting the name change proposal, arguing that this was the appropriate way to pay tribute to the Queen. The bill caused a lot of controversy on Twitter. Many people began to mistakenly think that the name of “Big Ben” was changed, but in fact it was renamed the clock tower where “Big Ben” is located.

Big Ben’s timekeeping is strictly regulated by a stack of coins placed on the huge pendulum. Big Ben has rarely stopped. Even after a bomb destroyed the Commons chamber during the Second World War, the clock tower survived and Big Ben continued to strike the hours. The tower in Westminster, which houses the giant bell known as Big Ben, is sinking into the banks of the Thames, partly as a result of decades of underground excavation. Big Ben is equipped with a microphone and is connected to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), so every time the big clock is reported, people can hear their powerful voice from the BBC’s broadcast.
