So, if salt is so important, then how would you find evidence that salt is important? For that matter, how would you find evidence that the Crusades really happened? Ask your favorite reference librarian, perhaps, at your local public library branch? One of the key parts of our democracy, and of Phase I of Project Do Better is libraries, right?

1.) Why is salt important, and how do we know this?
2.) Can you find any connection between the salt or spice trades, and the Crusades?
3.) Share your thoughts on whether trade and resources, or the lack thereof, could have influenced wars.
4.) Write a book, story, blog post or tweet that uses those thoughts, and please tell us about it! If you write a book, once it is published please consider donating a copy to your local public library.
