The ancient period 8000 bce to 1000 bce

The Ancient Period 8000 BCE to 1000 BCE

  • Between 9000 BCE and 7000 BCE

    • Agriculture introduced in the Middle East—spreads to Northern Africa, India and finally East Asia by 1000 BCE

  • Around 6000 BCE

    • Potters wheel invented; cities grew

  • 4000 BCE (Bronze Age)

    • Series of innovations

  • Between 3500 BCE and 1500 BCE

    • Four river valley civilizations


Characterize the ancient period

Characterize the Ancient Period

Task: Characterize the Ancient Period


Transitional kingdoms

Transitional Kingdoms

  • Case Study:

    • Hittites, Minoans, Mycenaeans, Phoenicians

  • Spread agriculture from river valleys to temperate climates…how?

    • Specialization & trade

    • Combining ag. & herding

    • Double-edged sword of conquest

    • Inherently weak…why?

    • Structural political problems


1000 bce a turning point

1000 BCE—A Turning Point

  • Wave of invasions on all river civilizations, made more effective b/c of iron weapons

    • Indus Valley falls to Aryans

    • Egypt’s political structure fails as does those in Mesopotamia

    • China’s transition is more subtle and symbolic: changes dynasties and introduces iron


The classical period 1000 bce to 450 ce

The Classical Period (1000 BCE to 450 CE)

  • Expansion

    • Aggressive invasions combines with river valley experience to form even large civilizations

  • Integration

    • New size makes it more challenging to keep everyone under control and society functioning


Hypothesize

Hypothesize…

  • What allows for classical civs to expand?

  • How might they attempt to provide greater coherence for their civilizations?

  • What aspects of ancient civilizations will be retained?

  • In what ways will classical civilizations be different?


Continuities

Continuities

  • Agricultural economies

  • Patriarchal societies

  • RVC heritage

Expanding Networks

RoutesAround 300 BCE to 300 CE, merchants, shippers, sea captains, and empire-builders extended and strengthened trade routes across Afroeurasia and the Americas.

EmpiresEmpires required networks of military and political communication. These networks encouraged interaction of many kinds over long distances.

WritingWith the appearance of alphabetic writing systems in Afroeurasia, people could communicate faster and easier than ever before.

ReligionsThe appearance of world religions— Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, and Christianity—stimulated cultural interchange across political and cultural boundaries.
