Comparative Civilizations 12
Laurie Bridge recommended John Green's Crash Course videos on Civilizations. Give him a try for quirky, high interest treatments of ancient cultures -- like Egyptian Civilization. His video clips are short and appear well researched. If you are interested in cultures that we won't look at in class, these are great quick overviews.

Two interesting videos to look at if you have time include:Engineering an Empire; Egypt, and Engineering Marvels; Egypt.Pyramid enthusiasts are encouraged to watch the BBC documentaryBuilding the Great Pyramid (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6).

- Friday, September 14 - Hand in your Egypt package by 4:30 today -- if you did not hand it in on Thursday. I have misplaced the computer discs with the material I planned to use today. Instead I have a treat for you, but it will involve losing work time. We will watch a BBC Documentary called How Art Made the World; More Human Than Human. Work on the package.
OK -- As you are probably noticing. We are more than a little behind the plan on Thursday. I am therefore putting off test day until Monday of next week - however, your package of work is still due Friday. Be sure to keep a copy of your questions to study from over the weekend. If your work is only handwritten, scan it, photocopy it, or get me to photocopy it.. Those of you also taking my Comparative Civilization course will face two collection days at once, so you can put off handing in one of the packages of work until Monday. The other will come in Friday, by 4:30 p.m.
