UNDERSTANDING THE ASSIGNMENT: ESSAY – EXPLORING ANCIENT MYSTERIES

Write a 3-4 paragraph essay (of at least 250-500 words) which adequately address the topic and requirements stated below. 

Format your essay according to the Strayer University Writing Standards as detailed in the formatting instructions below.

STEP 1: TOPIC SELECTION

Select a topic from the list below and include this topic on your title page.

Pyramids at Giza
There have been many theories regarding how the pyramids at Giza were constructed. Most experts agree that they were constructed as burial monuments for pharaohs, but “how” these ancient people constructed monuments of such great size without modern machinery is a mystery which is still being debated.

Tutankamen
Tutankhamen died young, at approximately eighteen (18) years of age. However, his cause of death has been the subject of quite varied scholarly theories and conclusions. Did he die of an injury, of illness, of murder, or something else?.

Great Zimbabwe
Great Zimbabwe is an enormous complex of structures in East Africa. Since the builders and occupants left no written records, several theories have developed as to the identity of its builders and the functions of the structures. Which theory makes the most sense?

Tomb of Shihuangdi
The monumental size and complexity of the Tomb of Shihuangdi is astounding, yet its location and construction details were to be kept secret. What was the emperor’s purpose for such an elaborate, secret burial place?.

STEP 2: MYSTERY & THEORIES

Describe the mystery as though someone is hearing it for the first time.

Provide a brief summary of at least 2 reasonable and scholarly theories which could explain the mystery. Because some theories may sound far-fetched, include the source or promoter of each theory – such as a scientist, a historian, a theologian, etc.

STEP 3: EXAMINING THE MOST PLAUSIBLE

Identify 1 of the theories that you summarized above as the most plausible.

Provide at least 2 convincing reasons why the theory you have chosen is the best one to explain the mystery.

STEP 4: REFERENCES & CITATIONS

Include a reference page that identifies at least 3 references. The class text may be included in the list of 3 or more.

In-text citations are required when paraphrasing or quoting another source. (i.e., STEPS 2 and 3 above)

STEP 5: DOUBLE CHECK FORMATTING

Formatting and writing standards are part of your grade. Align your formatting to the Strayer University Writing Standards.
