Product Description
This is one of the more abstract of my lessons, since it deals with economic forces instead of personalities. However, it tries to synthesize the theories of various historians on the question of whether the fall of Rome also brought economic collapse. In a nutshell, it shows that economic collapse did take place, but not all at once or equally in Northwestern Europe, the Western Mediterranean, and Eastern Mediterranean. Rather, it shows a vicious cycle that triggered a chain reaction that worked its way from northwest to southeast.

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. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes.
