Unit 2 Empires: Rome, Han, Gupta, Aztecs, Mayans, Incas, Aksum, Ghana, Mali and Songhai
In this unit we will compare and contrast the different reasons these empires rise and fell. We focus on the idea of what made them so great that we talk about them today. For example the Gupta Empire left the first written record for India that they actual did some of the first surgeries. Whereas the Mayan created a calendar that is very close to the one we use today. We also look into what lead to their downfall.
