What would be a good topic to write on for this school assignment, and what websites would be good references?

Asked by ChocolateReigns (5619points) March 15th, 2010

OK the assignment to write a 3–4 page paper on anything that happened between 300 and 500 AD. I thought about doing the Huns, but I couldn’t really find anything interesting.

“Nothing much happened between 300 – 500 AD.”

The End

Your school library would be a good source.

If you simply google “300 – 500 AD” then you’ll find a number of topics that you can discuss. I don’t see your question as being very pressing, given how easy it was to come up with answers. (And since I was there, I can tell you for certain that “not much was happening.”)

@njnyjobs Actually, that’s the problem. I’m homeschooled – I don’t have a school library really.
@Val123 There! That’s the kind of information I need. Thank you.
@CyanoticWasp hehe lol :)

@njnyjobs Yeah I’m going there tomorrow for a different book. I’ll have to check out what they have.

I just typed in “300 to 500 AD” in my search bar and snagged the first one out of the million hits that came up…...

ChocolateReigns's avatar

@Val123 really? I tried that and I did not get that result. I wonder why.

Val123's avatar

Could have been your search engine….Google is really still best.

Pick a single year and put it into Wikipedia, like this:

366
400
401
450

From any of those pages, just change the number in the bar at the top and poke around.

Wikipedia is noplace to end your research, but it is often a good place to start.

Christianity started to really get underway and organized.
There’s a documentary called… Banned from the Bible by the History Channel that’s really good on all this stuff.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Development_of_the_Christian_Biblical_canon
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantine_I_and_Christianity

The Roman Empire toppled (inner turmoil, crap economy, it divided into east and west, various barbarians kept attacking and kicking their ass, there were rats…)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decline_of_the_Roman_Empire
Anything including the term “The Sack of Rome”

Or go to these links for other ideas:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4th_century
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5th_century
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6th_century

I’d defiantly try to get a documentary on whatever you choose. They’re great intros and you can use them as a source.

@YARNLADY That’s the first idea that actually sounds doable….Thank you!
