Assignment for 10/12

Ulu Burun Shipwreck - reconstruction drawing of the ship and its cargo [National Geographic, Dec. 1987]

Following the reading of Chapter 6 and 7 in the text:

1. Use the handouts from class (10/05) and the reading, especially pp.  230-231 and the map, to plan a trade expedition that will include the buying and selling of the cargo products pictured on the handout.
2. Outline the route beginning and ending with your home port (your choice) and complete the provided manifest. Think about the sources for raw materials as well as finished products. This is a period before coinage - you must barter! - describe what you use for trade - what would be "valuable" in some areas in exchange for local products? 10/05/16
