Modern Tools for Ancient History

Professor Andy Overman's Roman World course had a unique assignment this semester - an Essignment. Students selected a crucial aspect of Roman History from the syllabus and designed a web-based project. Some were digitial shorts, some videos, others elaborate and colorful powerpoint presentations on dynamic chapters in Roman History. The class held a vote to choose their favorite.
