Conclusion Notes
Over the course of the five millennia studied in HIS 111 (to the end of the sixteenth century ce), the world changed dramatically.  Over time, distinct civilizations had arisen and fallen in different areas of the world.  In addition, individual societies had changed in size, nature and complexity over that period of time.  Certain characteristics, such as religion, political forms and cultural norms, also changed much over time.  There is little agreement among historians about the general outlines of the historical process that took place or even about many of the individual details, such as who built Machu Pichu..  That is what makes studying history interesting.
