This project describes the development of a dual-purpose reader for distance learning students in Ancient Near Eastern History as part of a graduate degree in the Humanities. The first purpose was to develop the analytical skills needed to undertake a thesis. The second purpose was to overcome the difficulty distance students have in obtaining adequate materials for graduate level research. The result is an affordable reader consisting of evidence collected to address the four historical questions posed to the student. The evidence was selected to be varied in type, to offer conflicting theories, and to minimize the cost of copyright fees. The completed reader will supplement a course in Ancient Near Eastern History and will place the student in the position of a researcher who has collected, but not yet interpreted, the evidence for a topic of interest.
