Sources for the Modern World

One of your required sources for the project is the Facts on File Ancient and Medieval History database. This database will provide you with all of the information you will need to know about Ancient Greece or Rome.

You will also need a source that will let you compare the ancient topic you choose with the same topic in the modern world. To use my example from class, you'd need to look up Soldier Field in order to effectively show how its design was influenced by the design of the Colloseum.

Here are some sources that will help you compare items in Chicago and the United States to Ancient Greece and Rome:
If you have something in mind that is not covered by these sites, let me know and maybe I can help you find a source.

Alternatively, if you plan to compare something like family life in modern Chicago with family life in ancient Rome, you may be able to complete an alternate assignment in place of your second source. See the post labeled "Primary Source Interview" for details.
