- Wednesday, March 13 - The League of Nations. Base lecture notes. If we get a chance we will continue the video The Road to War; Italy -- or start it, if we didn't do so on Tuesday. For a good treatment of the League's dealing with a major dispute, see ITV Schools' TV's The League of Nations and the Manchurian Dispute (20 minutes). There is much fascinating material at theLeague of Nations Homepage. M. Cliffe has a couple of online PowerPoints on the League: The League of Nations and Failures of the League.

- Friday, March 15 - Introductory video, Berlin in the 1920s. Germany, France and Britain in the 1920s (base notes). I expect we will only cover Germany and, perhaps, France in the time available.

- Monday, March 11 - Hand in the Architecture Hunt assignment. Take up #1-6, p. 10. Watch Crash Course; Christianity From Judaism to Constantine. Assignment: Conversion to Christianity -- Imagine that you are a young Greek person living in the city of Rome. Write a letter to your parents in Athens explaining why you have decided to give up worshiping the old Greek Gods and become a Christian. You will have to find out something about both Ancient Greek religion and early Christianity to do this. The assignment will be marked out of 10 and will be marked on both content and composition. It is due next class. Note: When we deal with religion in this course it is not with the intention of supporting one religious view over another. What we want to do is to understand basic beliefs of each religion and know something about the impact that any particular religion has had on the world. We do this using an historical approach.
