Mesopotamia In the museum at Baghdad, in the British Museumand in the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia are finely executed objects in beaten copper from the royal graves at Ur modern Tall al-Muqayyar in ancient Sumer. This relief illustrates the high level of art and technical skill attained by the Sumerians in the days of the 1st dynasty of Ur c. The malleability of unalloyed copper, which renders it too soft for weapons, is peculiarly valuable in the formation of vessels of every variety of form; and it has been put to this use in almost every age. Copper domestic vessels were regularly made in Sumer during the 4th millennium bc and in Egypt a little later.
The only real similarity between the three countries colonial ambitions is that they were all done to make a profit for the motherland. The Spanish, as the first to breach the New World, attempted to loot the continent of its silver and gold.
It did this by attempting to enslave the native populations and then conquering them. All three countries were able to weaken the European colonies in the Americas varied in many important aspects.
All three countries were able to weaken the Native Americans with a variety of germs for which the natives had not built up an immunity. After the Spanish conquered the lands from the indigenous people, they worked hard to acculturate and proselytize them to become Spanish.
A complete new ethnic group of mixed Spanish-Indian descent emerged in Latin America as a result of this process mestizo. The English attempted to establish colonies in the Americas that produced cash crops.
A cash crop is generally a non-food item like cotton or tobacco and is marked by a lack of variety in farming.
The English did not attempt to acculturate the Native populations and generally acquired their land and forced the Indians toward the frontiers. The Spanish and English were determined to build permanent colonies in the New World.
The French, on the other hand, were not nearly as committed as the other two in building permanent colonies. Their numbers were much smaller and they were committed to trading with the Native Americans and had a much friendlier and symbiotic relationship with the Indians.AFAM Intro to African American Studies This course provides an overview of African American history and culture.
