Study Guide: DE Midterm, 2011 The exam will have five parts. Part one. map. I provide a blank map (it stretches from Europe to the Caspian sea, and includes North Africa and part of the Arabian peninsula in the south) with the major rivers drawn in. There will be nine or ten items to locate, no choice. Cities must be identified with a dot. Empires must clearly show and ID borders. Items are worth one point each, though I may set empires at two points; there will be a total of ten points for this section. The items will be drawn from this list: Jerusalem Rome Aachen Constantinople Mecca Paris Prague Rhine River Danube River Seine River Volga River Teutonic States Normandy Sicily Ireland Black Sea Roman empire at its greatest extent (under Hadrian, c. 116 AD): show borders Islamic empire in 750 (show borders) Carolingian empire under Charlemagne (show borders: not including “tributary states”) Notes: for the cities, orient yourself by the rivers and coastlines: most cities are on major rivers or are near certain coastlines. Aachen is between two major rivers, so put it between the correct two rivers. Constantinople is in a very specific spot (easily found on the map) and must be put on that spot; others can be a bit more approximate (i.e. exactly how far up a river, I won’t care too much). Rivers themselves are drawn in, you just have to ID the right one. Sicily and Ireland should be easy, as islands; Normandy and the Teutonic states should ID the correct peninsulas. Empires are the hardest: again, orient yourself by rivers and peninsulas. Please note that maps of the Islamic empire in 750 often show three stages of increasing size, of which 750 is the largest, so in 750 it will include all those three shaded areas! Part two. A list of 11 or 12 items (mostly famous individuals, sometimes groups or events) that will be in jumbled order: you rewrite them in your blue book in correct chronological order, earliest to latest, with a one- or two-word identification, such as “pope,” “king of England” (or of Spain, or of the Franks), “ancient Roman emperor,” “Holy Roman emperor,” “saint,” “scholar,” “monk,” etc.

Notes: this is straightforward. It’s a variation of the usual identifications I ask for, in that
