Module 4: Paper Prompt

Paper Using the Digital Project ORBIS: 

Using the Orbis site, write a historically accurate narrative of a traveler in the Roman Empire in 200 CE. You must choose what kind of traveler your character was, i.e. class, religious background, gender, and occupation. Then, you must also choose a specific route using the ORBIS project. Use primary documents available in your textbook and the data from ORBIS to strengthen your narrative. Use your textbook to better understand life in the Roman Empire circa 200 CE. 

Make sure to pay attention to the historical context (culture, society, and economy of the Roman Empire in 200 CE)


Your paper should be at least 900 words and no more than 1,200 words in Times New Roman, 12-point font, and double-spaced.

You will be writing a historical short story. So while you will need to be historically accurate by recreating a believable narrative of a traveler in the Roman Empire based on the knowledge you accumulated from the textbook, lectures, and primary documents, the style is not the same as for an essay. Only use sources from our class material (Lecture+Textbook with Primary Sources) and the data from ORBIS.

Failure to follow guidelines will result in point deductions.

Cite all your sources by using footnotes and use the Chicago Manual of Style. It is accessible in the Reese Library’s Reference section, call number: Z253 .U69 2010.
