Last Minute Test Prep

Some questions you might see tomorrow:

  • What happened on Crete between c.1650-1350 BCE and how do we know?
  • What was occurring in the Eastern Mediterranean c.1200 BCE and how do we know?
  • Why were certain locations in Canaan important for maintaining political control over regions.
  • What can the mythical stories of Minos and Theseus tell us about the underlying historical reality of the Minoans and Mycenaeans? What about the stories of Abraham and Moses?
  • Why does historical context matter for understanding sources (Pylos Tablets, Med.H., Enuma, Exodus, Ham’s Code)?

Remember, this one is about using the information that you have to make inferences about historical development. Cause and effect, chronology, and interpreting information will come into play.

Your upcoming test will assess how you use information to make inferences about historical development. Cause and effect and the meaning of information will feature heavily. Questions will cover the period roughly between 2000-1100 BCE – know your timeline. Be prepared to use the Enuma Elis, Medinet Habu, the Pylos Tablets, and the King Minos story.

You will be allowed to bring in a single normal-sized page of notes – ONE SIDE ONLY. Yes it may be typed if you like.
