artworks from prehistory to 1400

To begin, select an theme focusing on artworks from prehistory to 1400 looking at a tie between these cultures and the contemporary world. For example, you might look at classical Greek architecture and the parallels to more recent architecture. Or, you may look at Gothic cathedrals and look for parallels in today’s world. The idea is to show the influences of these now ancient cultures on contemporary symbolism and culture. 

In a paragraph, explain why you chose the theme that you might explore. Submit by the end of week 2 the discussion forum. Discern whether you will be able to find sufficient research material to organize an exhibition around this theme and possible topic. List at least 2 of your authoritative references with a brief sentence or two describing the content of each one. Your professor will provide feedback.

NOTE: This class covers art from the Middle East and Europe [only] from the Paleolithic period through the end of the Gothic era (23,000BCE-1400CE). Therefor projects need to be constrained to art from those periods and places.
