With the right methods, studying the ancient world can be as engaging as it is informative. The teaching activities in this book are designed in a cookbook format so that educators can replicate these teaching "recipes” (including materials, budget, preparation time, study level) in classes of ancient art, archaeology, social studies, and history.
