Homework for Monday, October 5

October 2, 2015

Please finish the file “Mesopotamian History” posted below. This will include the sections “Sea Peoples and the Age of Confusion” and ” neo-Babylonian and Persian Empires”. These readings are really review on the Roberts but do contain some new information. Take notes, define the boldface terms and be ready to answer these questions:

1. What is the significance of the Battle of Qadesh?
2. To what does Leick attribute the Assyrian’s “aggressive foreign policy”?
3. What role do we see water playing (again) in Babylon’s sacking by the Assyrian king Sennacherib?
4. What role does Nebuchadnezzar play in Babylon’s resurgence?
5. What was the importance of Etemenanki?
6. What does Leick make of the Babylonians’ embracing (or not) of their Persian conquerors?
