The Puritans have been both honored and vilified for the creation of American culture, politics, and society over nearly four centuries, although it has been debated as to extent that this may be true, and whether we in fact understand Puritanism accurately today (cf. Robinson 2005). This essay will examine Puritan settlement in New England in the 17th century asking... ? PURITAN SETTLEMENT IN NEW...

Besides heroic myths in this regard, archaeology also sheds light on Dark Age because it doesn’t take the similar stance. Archaeological studies and evidences put Arthurian myth in clear context and help understand it without being influenced by some myth or legend (Arnold 157). “...The centuries between A.D. 400 and 600,when Roman rule in Britain...
