For centuries medieval Japan and medieval Europe have been compared. However, they represented fundamentally different societies; knights and samurai were born under different circumstances, and samurai political power evolved along a markedly different path into shapes and forms diverging greatly from those of European lordship. By exploring more deeply the history of medieval Japan, we will clarify contrasts, and bring similarities that did exist into focus.
Especially for educators of grades 6-12. Everyone welcome.
