      True

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Akhenaten, an ancient Egyptian pharaoh, did indeed build a new capital called Amarna and attempted to shift Egypt's religious system towards monotheism. He introduced the worship of a single god, Aten, and promoted it as the supreme deity. This move was a departure from the traditional polytheistic beliefs of Egypt, where multiple gods were worshipped. Akhenaten's religious reforms were significant but ultimately short-lived, as his successors reverted back to the traditional religious practices after his death.

    The Mycenaens originated on the island of Crete

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The Mycenaeans did not originate on the island of Crete. They were a civilization that emerged on the mainland of Greece around 1600 BCE. While they did have interactions and trade with the Minoans, who were based on the island of Crete, the Mycenaeans had their own distinct culture and society. They eventually became a dominant power in the Aegean region, with their center of power located in the city of Mycenae.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Mycenaeans deliberately destroyed most of the Minoan houses of both the peasants and the elites. This suggests that there was a deliberate act of destruction carried out by the Mycenaeans towards the Minoan civilization. This could have been due to a variety of reasons such as conquest, rivalry, or a desire to erase the Minoan culture. The destruction of both peasant and elite houses indicates that the Mycenaeans were not selective in their destruction and were intent on eradicating the Minoan presence.

  • 9. 

    The first advanced civilization of Greece is called Mycenaens because Mycenae was the first site excavated

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the Mycenaeans were indeed the first advanced civilization of Greece, and the name is derived from the excavation site of Mycenae. By excavating this site, archaeologists were able to uncover evidence of a sophisticated civilization that thrived in Greece during the Late Bronze Age. This civilization, known as the Mycenaeans, left behind impressive architectural structures, intricate artwork, and evidence of a complex social and political organization. Therefore, the name "Mycenaeans" is directly linked to the excavation of Mycenae, which was the first site to provide substantial evidence of this ancient civilization.

  • 10. 

    The Minoans used a type of writing called Linear B.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Minoans actually used a different type of writing called Linear A, not Linear B. Linear A is an undeciphered script that was used by the Minoans during the Bronze Age, while Linear B was a script used by the Mycenaeans, who were a later civilization that succeeded the Minoans. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    There is archaelogical proof of the destruction of Troy

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because there is archaeological evidence that supports the destruction of Troy. Excavations conducted by Heinrich Schliemann in the late 19th century uncovered several layers of ruins at the site believed to be the ancient city of Troy. These ruins showed signs of destruction, including evidence of fire and warfare, which aligns with the historical accounts of Troy's destruction as described in Homer's Iliad. The discovery of these archaeological remains provides tangible proof of the existence and destruction of Troy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the military generals were both literally and symbolically the center of the Assyrian universe. However, this is not true. While the military generals held significant power and were important figures in Assyrian society, they were not the literal or symbolic center of the universe. The center of the Assyrian universe was likely the king or the gods, who held ultimate authority and were considered the most important entities in their belief system.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The Assyrians were known for their brutal and terroristic tactics, which they used to instill fear and intimidate their subjects. They would often employ violence, mass killings, and forced deportations as a means of maintaining control over their empire. This ruthless approach helped them to establish dominance and prevent rebellions within their territories. Therefore, it can be concluded that the statement is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Library of Ashurbanipal was not a Minoan attempt, but rather an Assyrian library in Nineveh, which preserved a vast collection of ancient texts from various civilizations, including Babylonian, Assyrian, and Sumerian. The Minoans were an ancient civilization that existed on the island of Crete and did not have any direct involvement in the creation or preservation of the Library of Ashurbanipal.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

While there is evidence of ancient Israelite presence in the region, such as the Merneptah Stele mentioning "Israel" and some pottery fragments, there is no direct evidence of the Israelites' time in Egypt as described in the biblical narrative of the Exodus. The lack of substantial archaeological evidence has led some scholars to question the historical accuracy of the Exodus story.

These cruel actions created resentment and resistance among the subjugated populations, weakening the Assyrian empire from within. Additionally, the Assyrians' aggressive expansion and constant warfare drained their resources and stretched their military capabilities, further contributing to their eventual collapse.
