Product Description
The decline and fall of the Roman Empire is an issue that has engaged historians for centuries. This lesson analyzes how a multiplicity of factors combined to nearly destroy the Empire in the third century C.E. It then looks at the reigns of the various "Barrack emperors" as the empire spiralled to near extinction in the face of epidemic, civil wars, and barbarian invasions, and then how it was rescued by the nearly super-human efforts of a series of military emperors after 260. Included are coin portraits of the emperors of this time, illustrations of their reigns, and a short picture essay on the resurgence of the Persian Empire under the Sassanid Dynasty.

This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
