Start creating cultural analysis to accompany your maps. You may place them on the back of the map or a separate page. 11. If your map is getting too congested, print another one. You will keep up with these maps for the remainder of Unit II. Begin creating maps for the groups we have covered to this point: Byzantine, Western Europe, Africa and Islam. As we move through the unit, you should add items to your map. Eventually, China and America will be added to your maps.
