This is a fantastic, structured primary source activity in which students analyze excerpts from Byzantine Emperor Justinian's Code of Laws.
The worksheet includes an introduction and several easy-to-read passages from Justinian's Code along with 9 questions that have students analyzing each and comparing them to their own concepts of law and "natural rights". An answer key is provided for your convenience.
For an excellent companion activity on Justinian and the Byzantine Empire, see this Byzantine Emperor Justinian Campaign Poster
Both of these resources can also be downloaded as part of the larger, discounted Roman Empire Unit Bundle
