It is (minimum) 5 pages (double spaced) or 1250 words. Either length

The topic, format and approach are totally up to you. You are invited

to (but not required to) make comparisons between the ancient

material and modern parallels you might find. Or you can simply

focus on the ancient material. In general, the topic is whatever you

find interesting about the ancient material (and, if you feel like it,

showing its relevance to the modern day). You can write in the first

person, express personal opinions—there really are no guidelines in

actual primary sources (such as the ancient texts in the Shelton and

Knapp sourcebooks), which you will want to support in making your


But I must stress that those are not requirements, just

suggestions. The biggest part of this assignment is for you to decide

on something that interests you, and then write about it using the

(minimal) guidelines expressed above.

Pick ONE article from the two links above, not two.

The topic is whatever you want but must about the reading you pick about Roma.
