The End of the World Civilization by 1500 CE
The World’s civilization
The world’s civilization has shown a steady decline during the years approaching 1500 CE. However, there are some various reasons for this, which includes the internal and the external conflicts within or outside the civilization respectively where the external includes things like the natural disasters. The internal conflict within the Anasazi people led to the fall of Anasazi civilization in the year 1300 CE, and the individual groups went to form their competing culture in some other places. They, however, abandon their urban area in Colorado and moved to another area to start a new age of life. The external factors that have led to the end of civilization include the natural disasters like the earthquake which has destroyed so many structures that people made during those times (Kedar & Wiesner,2015).
Another reason for the fall of the world’s civilization was due to the issue of deforestation or perhaps the cutting down of trees (Kedar & Wiesner, 2015). For example, the Rapa Nui and much other civilization collapsed because the residents engaged so much in the cutting down of trees for other activities like for charcoal burning and building purposes. Some of the additional use of the trees was for transportation purpose. The island was isolated from the rest and due to this fact they could not find any partner to help them trade in the exchange of what they have such as the tree products like the fire wood and others. They stayed alone on the island until the coming of the Europeans in the year 1700 and found all the palm trees are gone and what they could do is to depend on other nearby states for building materials.
