Write a 550-word comparative “dig”—named for digging further into one of the following subjects that we have covered previously. Your “dig” should focus on one of these themes: conflict, women, or culture.
This “dig” should take the form of a researched essay in which you compare one of these themes in Hellenic Greece vs. Hellenistic Greece.

    Your instructions are to write a very detailed, very well researched paper about a topic that has been dealt with in class in a less detailed fashion.

    Focus on the bold words:

    Your “dig” should focus on one of these themes: conflict, women, or culture.
    This “dig” should take the form of a researched essay in which you compare one of these themes in Hellenic Greece vs. Hellenistic Greece.

    In researching and writing, "compare" means to describe and explain how two things are similar. You might ask your instructor if he/she really wants you to compare AND CONTRAST (tell the differences).

    Notice the differences in these:

    Hellenic (700-300 BC generally):
    >>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellenic_Greece (general information)
    >>(Broken Link Removed) (general information)
    >>http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=hellenic+greece&hl=en&btnG=Search&as_sdt=1%2C44&as_sdtp=on (much scholarly work here)

    Hellenistic (323 - 30 BC generally):
    >>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellenistic_period (general information)
    >>http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=hellenistic+greece&hl=en&btnG=Search&as_sdt=1%2C44&as_sdtp=on (much scholarly work here)

    You should also go to http://scholar.google.com and enter other search terms. This might work:

    hellenic hellenistic greece culture

    Also ... do you have access to a college or public library? Even if you go to the library only once to get a library card/number, you should be able to get the usernames and passwords so you can access the huge databases most libraries subscribe to these days. You'll often find better information through them than through general searches on the Internet.

    Here is an example -- one college's library website (but public libraries usually have many of these, too): (Broken Link Removed)
    Click on Electronic Resources/Databases to see the different databases this particular college provides for its students. EBSCOhost, ProQuest, and Facts.com are among the largest and best.

    What does your library provide? That's a good place to research.
