Lost Roman Treasure

Viewing Ideas


Before Watching

  1. Help students locate Zeugma on a contemporary world map or globe (it is near Nizip in Turkey's Gaziantep province).

  2. Organize students into three groups. Assign groups to take notes on the opinions about the dam as viewed by 1) the government officials, 2) the archeologists, and 3) the people being displaced from their homes.

After Watching

  1. Have students revisit their notes about how each group viewed the building of the dam. What was the impact of the dam? What were the advantages and disadvantages for each group? What were the human costs and benefits?
