You are part of a group of expert archaeologists specializing in a specific ancient river valley civilization. Your task is to gather three primary sources to represent each aspect of the PERSIA+GT Chart (3 P’s, 3 E’s, etc.). In order to prepare for the building of the new Museum of Ancient River Valley Civilizations, your sources should work together to give insight into the strengths and weaknesses of your River Valley civilization.
The challenge is to know enough about your region to be able to generate a thesis statement about your civilization, and to support your thesis with your primary sources. You will make informed decisions about which objects reflect the region's political, economic, religious, social, intellectual, aesthetic. and technological characteristics currents. Ideally, your individual thesis statements will connect to a greater general thesis statement about your civilization, agreed on by you and your group members.
You will each be expected to submit a bibliography and use reliable sources.
Please follow the directions below to conduct your research.
