monumental architecture, 800 words

Write an 800 words essay on both of the topics with the resource I provided, no other resources please.

Question 1

Compare and contrast three of the following four case studies of monumental architecture discussed this week: Great Pyramids (Old Kingdom Egypt); Xianyang (Qin Dynasty China), Stonehenge (Neolithic/Copper Age Britain), and Moai (Rapa Nui). In your discussion of each case study, describe the monuments, explain how they fit into or follow from existing monumental architecture traditions in the region, and examine the social contexts of their construction and use.

Question 2

Discuss the role of trade and exchange in two of the case studies discussed this week. One of your case studies must be the Malian Empire or the Swahili Coast (you can also choose both as your two case studies). How did local, regional, and interregional trade influence the economies, architecture, material culture, and/or other characteristics of the societies?
