Question:

What are some differences between libraries and archives?

Inactive
Mark V.
Answer:

The first difference between libraries and archives is in the way they both acquire their materials. Libraries get their materials from publishers or vendors while archives get their materials directly from the author or creator. Secondly, library materials are mostly published while archival material is mostly unpublished. In addition, library materials circulate (you can check them out) while archival materials do not circulate and must be viewed on site. Library material is arranged by subject classification whereas archival material is arranged by the original order it came in. Finally, library materials are most oftentimes available elsewhere in other libraries while archival materials are unique and not available anywhere else.

Question:

What was the first form of currency used by the colonists in New England?

Answer:

When the colonists first encountered the indigenous peoples they met in New England they noticed they passed around belts of purple and white shells called Wampum. The word wampum comes from "wampumeag" which is a Narraganset word that refers to strings of white shells that were exchanged. These shell belts were not originally used as currency, but to tell stories, given as gifts, and to record important battles and treaties between tribes. The colonists misunderstood the use of these shell belts and because gold and silver coins were in scarce supply they resorted to manufacturing wampum as a medium of exchange in the colonies. Wampum was traded in Massachusetts from 1637 to 1661 and it became legal tender in North Carolina in 1710. The shift away from wampum occurred gradually as the colonies began to print their own paper money and as gold, silver and copper became more available for use in coinage.

Question:

Romanization in Briton: Why did it fail?

Inactive
Mark V.
Answer:

Romanization in Briton failed because the various tribes that inhabited the area had no vested interest in adopting Roman ways and customs because it did not benefit them with the exception of the chieftains who governed them. The chieftains could see the benefits of trading with Rome, however they were uninterested in becoming a vassal of Rome subject to their governance. These chieftains could not persuade their people to give up their way of life and replace their religion by adopting Roman customs and gods that were foreign and alien to them. In addition, the significant distance between Briton and Rome created a geographical barrier that hampered Rome's ability to keep and maintain the garrisons needed to subdue the local population. Finally, ever increasing incursions of barbarian tribes from the North meant that Rome could not spare any legions that were needed to defend both the city and the countryside from these marauding invaders.
