    Correct Answer
    C. 1500 years
    Explanation
    The number of years between 500 BCE and 1000 CE is 1500 years because BCE (Before Common Era) counts down from 1, while CE (Common Era) counts up from 1. So, to calculate the number of years between these two dates, we add the number of years from 500 BCE to 1 CE (500 years) and the number of years from 1 CE to 1000 CE (1000 years), which equals 1500 years.

      3960 years

    Correct Answer
    A. 40 years
    Explanation
    The number of years between 1960 CE and 2000 CE is 40 years. This is because to find the number of years between two dates, we subtract the earlier year from the later year. In this case, 2000 - 1960 = 40.

      300 CE, 500 BCE 0, 250 BCE, 1200 CE

    • C.

      500 BCE, 250 BCE, 0 300 CE, 1200 CE

    Correct Answer
    C. 500 BCE, 250 BCE, 0 300 CE, 1200 CE
    Explanation
    The correct order of the years on an Ancient World Timeline would be 500 BCE, 250 BCE, 0, 300 CE, and 1200 CE. This is because BCE (Before Common Era) years are counted backwards, so 500 BCE comes before 250 BCE. The year 0 is considered a transition point from BCE to CE (Common Era), so it comes after 250 BCE. Finally, 300 CE and 1200 CE come after the year 0, in chronological order.

They study artifacts, structures, and other evidence left behind by past civilizations to gain insights into their way of life, customs, and history. This process involves carefully digging up the earth at archaeological sites to preserve and analyze the artifacts and other materials found. The other options mentioned in the question, studying animal movement patterns and finding food from past cultures, are not the primary focus of archeologists.
