1. Create a world map showing Aeneas's oceanic voyage from the Ionian Sea through the Mediterranean Sea to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
2. Dido and Turnus both play important roles in the epic poem. Along with other readers, debate which character is more tragic. Support your debate points with passages from the poem.
3. Design a Web site devoted to the Aeneid. Include links to other sites for historical, social, and informational material that would help readers better understand Virgil's time.
4. Take on the persona of one of the characters and write a short essay introducing yourself to others. What motivates you? What are your goals?
