Evaluation in HIS 205 will be based upon three different categories of assignment:

Crete And Myth Interviews


Minoan Artifacts


Portfolio Chapter


The Interview and Artifacts assignments are to be completed during our time on Crete while you will have extra time to complete the Portfolio Chapter.  That final assignment will be the same chapter that you complete for ANT 293 and will be due at the same time.

I would also like you to watch Bettany Hughes's documentary "The Minotaur's Island" and to listen to the 15-minute audio feature on the "Minoan Bull Leaper" from the History of the World in 100 Objects series.  I have included links to those two programs below.  There is no need to write anything in response to either of these, though the BBC audio feature offers an impressive example of how one particular artifact can be used to open up an entire world.

  Minoan Bull Leaper, History Of The World In 100 Objects

  Minotaur's Island, Channel 4, 2003 (98 mins.)

More detailed instructions about both the Crete and Myth Interviews and the Minoan Artifacts assignment will be provided when we are on Crete.
