The United States and Western Europe today are the result of the development of Western Civilization which we have studied. From the period 3000 BCE to 1660 CE, list the five most important developments in Western Civilization which are reflected in our Western society today. Rank the significance of the top five from 1 being the most significant on to 5 being the least significant of the five. Make sure to describe what basis or standard you used to choose these developments, as well as what basis you used to rank them from 1 to 5.
In addition to utilizing the course Textbook (Cole and Symes), you are required to use a minimum of three (3) scholarly sources, which you must identify and cite.
