The Near East was home to many great civilizations, but one of the most influential was the mighty Assyrian Empire. The Assyrians were a the most advanced civilization of their time, but they were always trying to conquer their neighbors — and that included the Greeks, whom they encountered around 1200 B.C. The Greeks used the Assyrians by teaching them Greek. This was a great nod of respect between these cultures. By 1134 B.C., the Assyrian Empire had collapsed and all bits of the Near East were now under the Greek rule. This collapse was attributed to many things, but one of the most important factors was a warrior called "Sargon I."
Assyria (Greek: Ἀσία, Assíā) was a kingdom located to the southwest of the Persian Empire (Greek: Πέραμα, Peráma) on the Maeander River delta, in Asia Minor (modern-day southwest Asia Minor). It was one of the most powerful nations of its era, and the greatest power in the region until the rise of Egypt. Records suggest that at its height, Assyria was a great imperial power, and a major threat to the Persian Empire. Assyria was founded by Shan-nish-zer in c.2300 BC, as a vassal state of the Hurrians. After a series of rebellions and internal conflicts, it was annexed to the Hittite Empire around 2000 BC, becoming the 5th to 6th Hurrian kingdom. King Tiglath-Pileser I of Assyria (744-727 BC), a great warrior with Hittite blood, united most of the area within modern-day Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran under one rule. King Sargon of Assyria (722-705 BC) completed the unification of the vast empire by conquering the Mitanni and the Urartians.
Haida, or Ha’da, was the aboriginal pre-Caucasian people of the northwest Pacific Coast of North America. They were among the first to live on the west coast of America and were originally the only aboriginal people there. The Haida were the center of a matrilineal society.
