When Emperor Diocletian divided the Roman Empire in 285 C.E. his motivations were primarily administrative. Yet within three hundred years, his decision would see one half of the empire left in ashes, and the other in slow decline, under threat from hostile forces in Asia.
This two-part worksheet provides an overview of Eastern Europe’s History, and the medieval origins of its modern-day complexities. Part I contains twelve matching questions centered on important names and terms, such as Jan Sobieski, the Golden Bull and the Battle of Kosovo. Part II is a fill-in grid which compares & contrasts the three outside empires (Moors, Mongols and Ottomans) that invaded Europe after the fall of Rome. Where did each one originate? How long did their occupation last, and where was it turned back?**
Perfect as an in-class activity, discussion-starter, review sheet or homework assignment!
