HISTORY– WESTERN CIVILIZATION I
Collaborative Archaeology/Historic Sites Project (StoryMap.js)
Purpose of the Assignment
This is a semester-long assignment with the purpose of researching and learning about archaeological discoveries that have contributed to the known information about Western History. Students will examine information about these historic sites in academic articles, online books, archeology journals, university websites, encyclopedias, and the UNESCO World Heritage site. This research will allow students to understand how archaeology and historical preservation has played an extremely important role in helping historians to understand the past and shape its interpretation. The assignment will also provide students with research and writing skills necessary in academic environments. Students will draft a short article about their assigned archaeological sites using their collected sources, which will be revised and submitted into a collective Digital History platform (StoryMap.js).

Part 2. Bibliography (5 pts)
Due Date: Friday, October 2
Directions: In Part 2, students will submit a list of minimum of 5 digital sources in the form of a bibliography in MLA or Chicago-Turabian style (see Canvas for citation info) of all the sources collected for the final archaeology report. This assignment will not require you to conduct research at the library due to safety concerns raised by Covid-19, but you may choose to retrieve materials from the library if you so choose.

Part 4. Draft #2 (20 pts)

Part 5. Submission to StoryMap.js (10 pts)
Due Date: Friday, December 11
Directions: StoryMapJS is a free digital tool to help you tell stories on the web that highlight the locations of a series of events. For this final step, you will collaborate in a final Digital Humanities story that will map important locations related to the history of Western cultures studied in class. We will share this digital resource with the Department of History and Politics at Marymount at the end of the Fall 2020 semester.
