- Pre-Roman peoples: Celts, Iberians and Colonisers.
- The Roman conquest of Hispania.
- Romanisation: society, economy and cities.
- Roman culture and art in Hispania.
- The Visigoths.

Instructions for the oral presentation in the classroom:

- You will be required to be able to communicate orally the necessary elements of the project, commenting maps and graphs.
Instructions for the test:
In addition to the presentation, there will be an extra of five minutes for completing a test about the presentation.
- Elaborated and corrected by each group. The grades will be communicated to the teacher.
- The elaboration and the answer to the other tests will be taken into account in the final grade of the project.
- It should include 10 multiple-choice questions, treating as many aspects of the presentation as possible.
- Try organising the answers like this:
- the right answer.
- one that is close but not true.
- one related with the topic but clearly wrong.
- one which does not make sense.
- Try asking general questions about the presentation, not about specific dates, names or quantities.
- There will be a sample in the blog for you to complete.
Any information you may need can be asked in the classroom, via e-mail or posting in the blog. Technical information such as how to do screen captures and look for high-resolution images are also included in the blog.
ALL PRESENTATIONS MUST BE SENT TO MY E-MAIL ACCOUNT (email@example.com) BEFORE THE PRESENTATION FOR THEIR ASSESSMENT.
The test should be sent at least two days before the presentation, so the teacher can print it out.
 Be careful when using images! Use high-resolution images, and do not distort them. Information about this can be found here: Choosing high resolution images and Resize images to avoid distortions.
