Ariadne: Resources for Athenaze


Writing: Creating an historical atlas of the Persian Wars

On page 230 of Athenaze, there is a map of the Persian Wars with boxes for the major stages of the Persian Wars. Using this map of the Persian Wars (courtesy of the Herodotus website), create your own map of the different stages of the Persian Wars in 480-79 BCE. Write 2-3 sentences for each of the following events:

Crossing the Hellespont

Battle of Thermopylae

aftermath of the Battle of Thermopylae at Artemisium

sack of Athens

Battle of Salamis

aftermath of the Battle of Salamis

Draw a box around each description and then line to each place name. You may use the vocabulary and language of the readings from Chapters 14-15 to write your description.
