Along with class lessons and activities, this assignment will help us address this essential question: How did the ﬁrst large empires in Africa and Asia develop between 1570 B.C.E. and 200 B.C.E.?
The topics discussed in this unit will wind and weave through the following historical themes:
For a long period, Egypt ruled Kush and the two cultures interacted. When the Kush Empire conquered Egypt, therefore, the Kushites adopted many Egyptian cultural values and ideas.
