Early Modern Travel Essay: Essay – 5-6 pages – double spaced – Times New Roman –
Students will write an essay on travel in the Ottoman world reflecting on their own experience
playing the Hajj Trail Historical Simulation. The essay should narrate your own journey and
experience while traveling the hajj road talking about what you encountered, where you went,
what difficulties your character had on the hajj road, and finally reflecting on what you learned
about traveling in the Ottoman 17th century world. Students should include at least three
references contextualizing their own experience in the simulation with quotes from either the
two primary sources assigned with this unit (Evliya Celebi or Ibn al-Tayyib) or citing primary
source quotes (in the historical account section) from the Hajj Trail itself. For this assignment
students can cite instances from the Hajj Trail simulation in the following manner (Hajj Trail,
“Title of the Page you are Citing (i.e. a city or event title)”).
The simulation can be found here: www.hajjtrail.com
