CHOOSE ONE OF THE TWO QUESTIONS AND WRITE AN ESSAY IN RESPONSE.
RESPONSES SHOULD BE NO LONGER THAN 1200 WORDS; THERE IS NO MINIMUM LENGTH.
1. From 4000 BCE to 600 BCE human society developed the main characteristics of “civilization.” In a well-structured essay, define ancient civilization and its components, the overall factors that led to the development of civilization, and how it manifested comparatively in Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, and India. Be sure to discuss how each of the four civilizations possessed the respective components of civilization.
2. Many people consider the period between 600 BCE to 300 CE the Classical Era. In a well-structured essay, describe the civilizations of the Greeks, Romans, and Qin/Han China. What kinds of political, economic, and social advances did these societies develop? How did they influence each other? Please also add how the rise of Christianity is related to both Greek and Roman societies and civilization, as well as describing Early Christian culture.
It would probably come out to a page per society, with a little intro and conclusion, but this is not a rule nor should it be interpreted as linked to a grading rubric. I will evaluate your papers based on breadth of factual content and writing quality, not some arbitrary length of the paper. The maximum length is there for my sanity.
