Where on a world map are the main areas and geographical
features that we have discussed in class? Consider major empires, kingdoms, states,
countries, places where important conflicts/developments/movements took place, etc.
you should be able to identify places like England, Normandy, France,
Italy, Spain (Castile, Aragon, Grenada), Holy Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, etc.
Please note that these are examples, not a complete list.
go through your lecture notes and consider
that we discussed in class are on the European map. Use the blank map provided
on eLearning as a study aid. (It might be a good idea to make several copies, so
that your map does not get too “crowded.”)
Sometimes, the map questions will require you to think in two steps.
I may ask you to identify the area on the map where Christianity began. You
would therefore have to figure out where Christianity started in order to know that
I am asking you to identify Israel on the map.
