How far do you agree that the building of castles was the main
reason why the English were unable to mount a successful challenge to William I’s rule?
After William’s victory at Hastings in 1066, he introduced Motte and Bailey castles, which showed the Norman’s power, when faced with rebellions from 1068. Nevertheless, not only did he use castles to prevent the English from mounting a challenge to Williams rule, he also introduced the feudal system, as well as the Doomsday book and harrying of the north.
To begin with, William was a Norman, where he lived in a country full of castles which showed of wealth. On top of this, French kings had gained a reputation for building castles, as a way of coping with the constant attacks by Vikings from Scandinavia. After the victory of William at Hastings in 1066, he acted swiftly to solidify his victory, where he began to build motte and bailey castles, which was newly introduced as before the conquest there was only one apparent castle in Hereford. Although William was a powerful man, he was unpopular in the English kingdom, where he was faced with rebellions from 1067, with the first rebellion in Dover. William managed to respond by re-asserting his authority as he captured villages, towns and road crossings in places where rebellions took place and building a castle. This was then a visible sign of the Norman’s power over the English. The castles provided his troops with strong defensive structures to guard against any upstart Saxons bold enough to try to prevent William's rule. Castles were built in Exeter, Warwick, Nottingham, Lincoln, Huntingdon, Cambridge and York. As a result of the castle building, the English were unable to mount a successful challenge to Williams I rule. Despite this, the series of castle building did not make the problem disappear. Those who rebelled against William’s power gathered together in…...

History of the Iphone

... from all classes of life own an iPhone. It is my opinion that Apple initially intended for the iPhone to be more of a business tool for the white collar worker. As time and technology progressed and the iPhone became so popular, Apple was able to manufacture the phone at a cost that blue collar workers could afford, thus changing their marketing plan. Therefore, it is my conclusion that Apple started with one marketing plan, and as the opportunity presented itself, changed direction and broadened their target customer base to include a much larger population.

Environmental History

...History 124 7 November 2012 Coal Power and the Upper Big Branch Mining Disaster Coal was a major energy source for the United States throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries during the Industrial Revolution (Yale.edu). Even though it was a major energy source, coal has caused many problems with the environment and the people of the United States. Many disasters have occurred because of the safety regulations of coal mines. The safety regulations and conditions of coal mines have caused harm to people through death and poverty and has caused harm to the environment through pollution of the air and water over the years. The history of where coal was mined can help us understand how a disaster can happen in West Virginia or anywhere else. Coal was first recorded in the United States in 1663-1664 (netl-history). The coal shows up on a map of the Illinois River (netl-hisoty). Then in 1701 coal was found on the James River (netl-history). The James River is now Richmond, Virginia (netl-history). Several “coal mines” were shown on a map of the upper Potomac River by 1736 (netl-history). The upper Potomac River is now the border of Maryland and West Virginia (netl-history). The first commercial coal production began in 1748 from mines around the Richmond, Virginia area (netl-hisotry). In the late 1700s coal was starting to be mined at Mount Washington in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (netl-history). Over time coal was discovered in many different locations. It...

Germany Mba Research Paper

... divided into several parts. Each ruling a different section, Ludwig II took East Francia (including territories east of the Rhine), Lothair took the Middle Kingdom (smaller area lying west of the Rhine), and Charles I (the Bald) rules West Francia, which later would become France. During the 9th Century raiders from the east staged multiple attacks on East Francia. German nobles received titles and land from the Ludwig in reward for their aide given in defending the realm. Gradually these Germanic nobles, or dukes, created independent orders within Germany. The largest and most powerful of these duchies were the Saxony, Swabia, Franconia, Bavaria, and Lorraine.² Middle Hisotry Under the leadership of Duke Henry of Saxony – 919 to 936, the Germanic peoples were united. Henry took the title of King, and for the first time the term Kingdom (Empire) of the Germans – “Regnum Teutonicorum” – was applied to the Frankish kingdom, thus creating the German empire out of the East Frankish kingdom by bringing the five largest German duchies into a strong alliance. In 936 Otto I the Great was crowned. He strengthed what Henry started by appointing bishops and abbotts as princes of the Empire, whereby creating a national Church. At the Battle of Lechfeld in 955 a victory over the Magyars of Hungary and the “Slavs” between the Elbe and Oder rivers contained the outside threats to the Kingdom. In 962 Otto I was crowned Holy Emperor of Rome by the Pope, after heeding......

The Importance of Fire

... protection when dark. Even today, we use fire as a form of protection during camping at night, keeping the wild animals who are afraid of fire at bay. It also had another purpose in the lives of the primitive humans, one the author believes was the first symptom of civilization, for it provided a place of gathering and socializing. Taking care of the central fire place of the settlement was a group effort, requiring everyone to either gather and add fuel, and keep it dry. This gathering would have allowed them to exchange ideas, only possible if there was a common language, a characteristic of civilization. In conclusion, fire had a bigger role in the early human development than popular opinions tends to admit. Fire not only gave warmth and light, but the social aspect related led to other human developments, such as cooking, agriculture, the creation of more sophisticated tools, and perhaps the domestication of animals. Which in returned allowed the primitive humans to explore new lands, and grow.

... barns and stables by talking to the staff in the stable. In conclusion, after working with the big event, I felt I made impacts by helping others and serving the community. I always believe that the true value of  our life is not in what we have, but in what we give. I would like very much to join the Hart School Big Event next time and serve the community. There is a career fair held by PCMA of the Hart School in Godwin this Saturday. As a sopheremore hospitality student, I attended this event and really learned a lot from it. The first stall attatcted me is the Boonsboro Country Club located at Lynchburg. After a brief self- introduction to Mr. Barden who is the general manager, I knew that the hisotry of Boonsboro Country Club can be tracked back to 1796. As one of the best country club in the centerl Virginal, they offer dining, banquets, meetings, golf and a great number of recreation. And the internship oppotunities they offered this summer is food and beverge operation staff. What impressed me the most were the membership classification of the club. There are 9 kinds of membership divides by ages, marital status and reacreations preferences. Personalization is the trend in hospitality indutry.  All mumbers with different situtation and preference will be fully statidfied. Another stall I stayed for long time is the Bohemian Club located in San Francisco. Also with a long history, the Bohemian Club was founded in 1872, and has membership which is comprised......
