You are a historian working in the Jeffersonian Museum in Washington D.C. You are working on a project featuring one of the ancient civilizations: Maya, Aztec, and Inca. You need to research the ancient civilization assigned to you. How can we preserve ancient civilizations?

To help focus your research you need to answer the following focus questions:

  • What are the key elements (i.e. culture, government, language, religion, technology) of civilizations?

  • What are the physical, social, cultural, and political characteristics of ancient pre-Colombian Mesoamerican civilizations?

  • How do the climate and the physical geography of Mesoamerica impact the human activity and living conditions of the people that live there?

  • How do we measure the effect of ancient civilizations on modern civilization?

  • How does technology influence the human capacity to modify the physical environment?
