Roman Ruggiero

Comparing the workmanship of Roman Ruggiero ' ' The Mechanisms of the Colonial&#039 Conquest; ' with the workmanship of Galeano, as much is perceived that the Castilians as the lusitanos, had carried through at a first moment, a conquest for the weapons or swords, a time that its armaments were superior to the ones of the aboriginals.
