Collapse of Civilizations
The ancient civilizations discussed this week and last week all to some extent collapsed. For this discussion, discuss the collapse of one of the civilizations described in the textbook. On p. 480, different causes for civilizational collapse are listed: identify the cause (or causes) most applicable to your chosen civilization and support this with evidence. Lastly, use the information on p. 481-482 to discuss whether our own civilization is destined to collapse. Based on what we have learned from ancient civilizations, are their ways we can culturally adapt to changes?
