Week 2 writing assignment:
No primary sources exist for Minoan Crete and Mycenaean Greece, so the questions about those civilizations therefore involve summarizing the secondary readings you have been assigned about them.
Choose two of the following.
1. In book 6 of The Iliad, what do we learn about Hector? What kind of man is he? Why does he fight?
2. Write a summary of the history of Minoan Crete.
3. Summarize some of the key points in the reading on Mycenaean Greece.
