Question Description

Unit 7 Discussion: Great Zimbabwe

For over one hundred years, controversies have surrounded the archeological site at Great Zimbabwe. For much of the twentieth century, there was a debate about who built Great Zimbabwe, who should own the artifacts from the site, and, more recently, who should control access to its ruins. Delve into one of these controversies by posting to this discussion. You may want to read several of the sources posted, then choose ONE source to examine in detail by answering the questions under Step 1.

STEP 1:

In about 300 words, focus on one of the potential sources below and do all of the following:

  • Explain the context of your chosen source (Consider: what can you surmise about the author’s background, when was the source was written, and how the source reflects attitudes prevalent when it was written)
  • Identify the source’s point of view (Answer: What stance does your source take? How does the source’s stance relate to the debate?)
  • Assess the source by addressing: How does your source try to legitimize its point of view? What is your assessment of its point of view?

Potential sources to examine debates

I. Who built Great Zimbabwe?

OR

II. What is the significance of Great Zimbabwe today?

Citations required! All posts require bibliographies AND internal citations (or footnotes). I recommend limiting yourself to our course’s materials (check the supplementary materials for useful information). Be sure to cite course materials, the textbook, the source(s) above, and any other materials you have consulted to write your post.
