Reflection Questions
  • What is the relationship between military campaigns, the rise and fall of empires, and long-range shifts in culture?

  • How might the ferment and movement of ancient peoples call for revision of the view that non-Western cultures were “timeless”?

  • How has recent archeology changed our view of classical Mesoamerica?

  • Archeologists have found Roman artifacts as far east as the South China Sea. What are some implications of this fact?
