How to do a Visual Analysis- a 5 Step Process Infographic: It’s been my experience that students approaching a visual analysis assume that they have to find a visual artifact that is overtly controversial (like a racy lingerie ad or using teenagers to sell products) or else there is nothing to say about it.

Babylonian Map - This artifact was discovered in Iraq close to the Euphrates river in the late 1800s and first published (or written about) in 1899. It has been dated to around 600 BCE. This was the oldest known map for several decades until the Nippur map. The Babylonian Map is currently in the British Museum as far as I know.
