The correct answer is
C.
By comparing a message written in both hieroglyphics and Greek, scholars were able to translate the hieroglyphic symbols.

Why did early humans develop music? What are some of the ways that they were thought to create music?

Answer:

Early humans developed music as a form of expression and they did so through the sound of bodily movements.

Explanation:

The earliest sonorous imitations of the man of prehistory were solely through the sound of body movements accompanied by vocal sounds, they intended to complete the possession of the animal in its essence, its soul.

When the human being realized himself, he sought the answers of what he did not understand: the first answers were magical, with the spiritual beliefs appeared the religions. For some cultures the music had a divine origin, because they believed that the sounds were given to them by a divinity. However, the music had a direct correspondence with the cosmos and with the movement of the planets. Thus appeared the first legends about its origin.

Only through the study of archaeological sites can we have an idea of ​​the development of music in the first human groups. The rock art found in caves gives a vague idea of ​​this development by presenting figures that seem to sing, dance or play instruments. Fragments of what appear to be musical instruments offer new clues to completing this scenario. However, the entire chronology of musical development can not be precisely defined. It is impossible, for example, to determine if vocal music came before or after beating with body sticks or percussions. But we can speculate, from cognitive developments or the ability to manipulate materials, on some of the possible evolutions in music.

Which of the following gives the best analysis of medieval society? a. The era was dominated by the Churches roles in the political world. b. The generation was impacted by the middle class, which became an important part of the feudal system. c. Christianity, chivalry, and the power-struggle between Popes and kings marked the era. d. Literature developed that was mostly Christian in nature.

Answer:

c. Christianity, chivalry, and the power-struggle between Popes and kings marked the era.

Explanation:

Medieval society was for centuries a basically rural society. In the Middle Ages ninety percent of the population lived in the countryside, center of all activity and daily life for the inhabitants of that time.

In the first medieval centuries, peasants organized themselves around their own lands and other common lands, such as forests, which they shared with their neighbors. In small groups, they imposed their laws and justice, organized the harvests and the resources that they obtained from them.

Little by little, these communities were absorbed by lords, lay or religious, to whom those lands had been given. Thus begins what we have today called feudal system or feudalism, establishing itself as a mode of social organization.

The society was divided into estates: at the base we found the peasants, free or serfs, who assumed the immense majority of the population; in the intermediate ranks are the military and the nobles, lay or ecclesiastical. Not all had the same category but the status within these two groups varied. We end up on the cusp with royalty, that is, the king and his family.
