CONTRASTS AND CONNECTIONS
With an interactive approach that explores the rise and fall of rulers and civilizations, historic contributions, and the daily lives of common men and women, this inquiry-based text delves into the Roman Empire, Medieval Europe, and the Islamic world. Using full-color illustrations, the text combines primary source material, maps, graphs, photographs of architecture and artifacts, and stimulating questions:
- How religious were people in the Middle Ages?
- What made the Arabs so successful?
- Who benefited from the Crusades?
Numerous student activities include using available data to evaluate the chances that Hannibal’s attack on Rome will succeed and reconstructing medieval villages from archaeological and documentary evidence.
