use of images is encouraged.

Include the following:

  • The
    mythological origins, history, and functions of the place

  • Any sacred
    objects and attributes associated with the deities and mythological
    origins of this place, for example, Apollo's snake and lyre or Buddha's
    bodhi tree -- Discuss the symbolism of these objects as used by
    contemporary people and cultures.

  • A comparison
    of this place to those that serve similar functions in other cultures, for
    example, mountain tops, temples, burial sites or memorials, and so on

  • The
    relevance of this place and these objects in contemporary culture -- What
    significance do these places or things hold in the minds and emotions of
    the people? How do these places or things connect to mythological stories
    from that culture? What is the role of place and the associated objects?

  • The most
    important facts to know about the surrounding culture, and etiquette and
    dress to follow when visiting to this place -- With what knowledge and
    experiences would you hope to return home?

 Be prepared to make a 6-8 minute presentation in
front of the class.  Any students who do not present in person will lose a
