Saxon Culture

Saxons were a tribe of people who inhabited Britain. Saxon culture contained of architecture, art, literature, etc.

Saxon buildings were quite simple. They were made mostly of wood, and the roof being made of thatch. They usually built their houses around agricultural sites. Also, the Saxons were very fond of wood, using it for cups and halls.

Saxon art was mostly comprised of jewelry. They have made several brooches, buckles, beads, and wrist-clasps, many of which were made of outstanding quality. They most commonly used gold and silver to create these pieces.

Saxon literature was written in Old English. They wrote Bible translations, riddles, chronicles, legal works, and more. Their works weren’t focused around rhyming, rather alliteration. Alliteration was basically repeated stressed vocals, sound, etc. At the start of the next line of a writing, there would also be a brief pause between sentences.

Greek Mythology and how it’s Based on Their World View (English Essay)

The Greeks mythology was inspired by their worldview. From their myths, it seems like they were all fantasy, and they used them to describe things they didn’t understand. They would also seem to form their myths off their religion. They created creatures and idols in their myths that were sapped from their religion.

The tales of Hercules is a great example on how their religion was a strong influence of mythology. He is practically almost a god, being able to perform tasks nobody else could. This was how the Greeks envisioned their gods.

Around the World (English Essay)

Disclaimer: This may not make sense to you if you are reading this casually. Before reading this post, please read Around the World in 80 Days first. Click me to get started.

This week, I will write about where I would go if I went around the world. I will be using slightly different locations that Phineas Fogg did.

First, I would start off in Boston, and then take a plane to Paris. Once off the plane, I would spend a few hours in Paris, but then head off on my way towards Italy. I would take a boat to Italy, and stop off at Rome (Italy’s Capital city). After taking a few hours there (at this time I imagine it would be night), I would stay there for the night. Once it is morning, I would go off on my journey to Tokyo, Japan.

I’d imagine it would be 12 hours or maybe a day. Once at Tokyo, I would spend many hours looking around and observing. I’d rest at Tokyo, and then make me way off again. I would then take a boat to California, which I imagine would take 8-9 hours. Once there, I would take a plane back to Boston, and my journey would be done.

Overall, I think it would take about 2 months to complete my journey, because if we are talking realistically, it would probably take longer than then times I put up.

Anyway, that’s it!
