Ancient Africa: Sources, States, and Societies in Transition
Choose one of the following topics and write a 1000-1200 word paper using the required sources.
• You must use at least three sources, two of which must be articles. You may use the film “Tree of Iron” but must combine it with two readings selected from Collins or other required essays through week 5 (this does not include online exhibits/essays, only assigned articles—please ask for clarification if this is not clear to you). You may use one of the online exhibits for Week 5, but you must also use two articles. My Powerpoint presentations and lectures do not count towards these 3 sources.
• You must follow the formatting guidelines detailed in the syllabus.
• You must use footnotes and cite all sources you use. Plagiarism is a punishable offense. A link to the basic style of citation is in the Assignments folder.
