Study Guide For Midterm Slide Exam, ARTH10 03
Spring 2014

Below are the objects/images from your textbook for which you will be responsible on the midterm slide exam. All of the images and info on the midterm will come from this guide except for maybe a couple of extra credits that I will announce in class. There won’t be any tricks or additional material on the test. All illustration numbers on the study guide refer to the illustrations in the 14th edition of the Gardner’s text.

1 a. What is the name of this building?
b. What culture built it?
c. In what modern country or ancient area is it located?
d. What is the approximate date?
e. There are several possible reasons why the people of this culture built such tall, tower-like structures to support temples. Give one.

So you would write in your blue book,

1 a. The White Temple
b. Sumerians
c. either Mesopotamia or Iraq would be OK. If I...
