Please watch the first 20 minutes of the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etmhB2ZwqJs

In point form, list off 3-4 examples of our uncertainty about the past. Listen for words/phrases that indicate doubt, such as it is believed or some argue.

Next, read the story of Gilgamesh on page 46 of your textbook.

  1. Write a short summary of the story (3-4 sentences)
  2. In 3-4 sentences, explain whether the story of Gilgamesh is primarily a political story (about politics and power), a religious story (about one culture’s beliefs about gods), or a human relationship story (about how humans relate to each other).
