A website can be great tool for us to gather knowledge and present it in the form they way we interpret it. I chose to read this website because it matched the criteria of my research, was simple, understandable and was easy to locate what I was looking for. One of the paragraph which will be part of my essay is;
Geographical location plays a part in access to trading and marketing. Almost all of the empires have been based upon trade routes such as the Mongol Empire which was based on the Silk road from China to the west. Many of the cultures suffer due to them being landlocked, situated in high mountain ranges and lack of river, long coastlines and good natural harbors, since these obstacles prevent them from blending into different cultures and adapting new techniques. If cultures don’t blend and interact, they prevent themselves from sharing new ideas and techniques and cultures just continue with their isolated development. They might be using new techniques, but those new techniques might be old to other cultures, therefore if they don’t blend they are not advancing at a rate which they are supposed to be at.
