Follow the rubric in the attached document.

Choose one (1) of the topics below and develop at least 2 pg essay which adequately address the
topic you have chosen.

Topic Choices

  • There have been many theories regarding how the pyramids at Giza
    were constructed. Most experts agree that they were constructed as
    burial monuments for pharaohs, but “how” these ancient people
    constructed monuments of such great size without modern machinery is a
    mystery which is still being debated.
  • No one can say for certain what happened to the great urban Mayan
    civilization, but theories abound and include varied possible
    alternatives to explain the relatively abrupt and mysterious
    disappearance of the Mayan civilization.
  • Tutankhamen died young, at approximately eighteen (18) years of age.
    However, his cause of death has been the subject of quite varied
    scholarly theories and conclusions. Did he die of an injury, of illness,
    of murder, or something else?.
  • Minoan Crete was a major civilization in its time, but several
    theories have been advanced to explain its demise, including
    speculations associating it with mythical Atlantis. What were the causes
    of Minoan Civilization’s decline?
  • Great Zimbabwe is an enormous complex of structures in East Africa.
    Since the builders and occupants left no written records, several
    theories have developed as to the identity of its builders and the
    functions of the structures. Which theory makes the most sense?
  • The monumental size and complexity of the Tomb of Shihuangdi is
    astounding, yet its location and construction details were to be kept
    secret. What was the emperor’s purpose for such an elaborate, secret
    burial place?
  • Other topic choice recommended and approved by the professor and supported by the grading rubric.

Write a three to four (3-4) paragraph paper in which you:

  1. Clearly state the “mystery” and provide a brief summary of at least
    two (2) reasonable and scholarly theories which could explain the
    mystery. Because some theories may sound far-fetched, include the source
    or promoter of each theory – such as a scientist, a historian, a
    theologian, etc.
  2. After summarizing at least two (2) scholarly theories, identify one
    (1) of the theories as the most plausible and provide at least two (2)
    convincing reasons why the theory you have chosen is the best one to
    explain the mystery. This will involve some critical reasoning skills on
    your part.
  3. Use at least two (2) sources plus the class textbook. (Three [3] sources total as the minimum) Note:
    Wikipedia and other similar Websites do not qualify as academic
    resources. You are highly encouraged to use the Resource Center tab at
    the top of your Blackboard page.
