These are the class notes that I took while sitting in the Western Civilization class in college. It is a 100 level survey class that most history majors start off with. The notes go for 21 pages and are mostly in outline format with some diagrams. This would be useful as a starting off point for students or as a mass study guide of key points leading up to 1600. Also useful as a brush up for teachers who haven't covered the subject in a while.
