Project description
Class: Western Civilization of Greece

AT LEAST ONE SOURCE MUST BE A PRIMARY SOURCE! Very important.

Research and critically analyze the battle of Thermopylae that happened around c. 480 B.C.

Include:

Background/Prelude of the battle and opposing forces(Include a little detail on the 300 Spartans).
Strategic/tactical considerations of the opposing forces.
First day, second day, third day, and the aftermath.
Conclude with the significance and legacy of the battle.

The “meat” of the paper should mostly be the three days of battle.
