Compare and Contrast Ancient Cultures
The essay should answer the questions in an organized, clear and concise manner with a minimum of spelling and grammatical errors.
General statements should be well supported by specific and detailed examples and it should be clear from your use of examples that you have examined them thoroughly.
Always be clear about your sources. When external sources are used, even if just for background, you should provide sufficient citation to identify them both in terms of bibliography and notes.
First Essay: Write an essay in which you compare and contrast the “personalities” of Ancient Mesopotamian, Hebrew (Levantine), Egyptian, Minoan and Mycenaean cultures. Incorporate at least one example (more is better), thoroughly treated, of art, architecture or original writing (there should be a variety) from each culture in formulating your answer, explaining how the works chosen reflect those personalities.
