    Section IV - Historical Periods

    in the spur of the moment i couldnt remember anything about early delian league and as a class we glanced over the roles of Leonidas, Themistocles, Euribiades etc. i revised them but the information didn't seem to stick. well its in the past now. there is nothing i can do about it.

    amount of pages for Peloponnesian War :)

    completing a full booklet should be fine. of course is does depend on your size of writing. i can't remember how many pages the booklet has but i do remember that the lines are quite large.

    Greek World 500-440 BC: The Persian Wars or The Delian League

    hmm. i'm pretty good as an all-rounder and i don't have a preference. it'll depend on the question they give us. in my half yearlies i did the delian League (one of 2 out of 7) but in your case i would have done Persian wars. as i said, it depends on the question.

    "Why did so many member states revolt from the Delian League/Athenian Empire?"
