Embassy Posted June 28, 2012 Share Posted June 28, 2012 Please help me assemble a reading list for my ds. We are spending most of our school year on ancient Rome, plus some time on early Christianity, ancient China, and the ancient Celts. The History of Ancient Rome from the Teaching Company is the main resource with added documentaries and movies and one or two research papers. Here is what I have so far for literature or historical fiction (I'd love to add more literature to this list): Detectives in Togas The Bronze Bow The Eagle of the Ninth The Lantern Bearers The Silver Branch Ben Hur The Robe Shakespeare - Julius Caesar (still deciding if I want the original, a play on DVD/movie, or a retelling - I'm thinking a retelling since my ds isn't interested in Shakespeare) Also I'm thinking of at least excerpts from the following: (any other suggestions) St. Augustine City of God Josepheus War of the Jews The Gallic War - Caesar The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire - Gibbon Early Church Fathers If you have suggestions for ancient Celts, ancient China, or early Christianity I'm :bigear: Reading level is inconsequential, but I would like to avoid graphic violence and sex.
