Midterm Study Guide

Below are some key names, terms, events etc., intended to help you test yourself on your familiarity with the material presented in lectures and readings. NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT AN EXHAUSTIVE LIST OF EVERYTHING YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR.


As noted on the syllabus, the midterm will consist of four main sections:

1) multiple choice questions
2) brief identifications of important names, places and terms
3) 2-3 short answers on historical and cultural topics: about a paragraph with as much information as you can give us
4) a section in which you will be asked to identify and briefly comment on passages from the section readings and/or on visual images (taken from Scarre or from the lectures).

Important people/deities (Who are they? When did they live/write? Why do they matter?)

Key Terms (Latin) Key Terms (English) Historical Events (When did they happen? Why are they significant?) Roman Offices (What do they do? How are they chosen?) Other Suggestions for Studying
