History Lesson Log #4: Ancient Rome

We have had a lot of fun exploring Ancient Rome, though as you can see, I haven’t used a lot of resources. Now that we have a subscription to the Great Courses Plus, this seems to be the best resource I can find. My twelve-year-old and I have really enjoyed watching the lecture, and there are more courses we are planning to watch as well. I highly recommend the Great Courses for mature middle schoolers or high school students.

Sources I’ve used for this topic:


My husband’s lecture and screencast titled “Ancient Rome.”

Home Library

The Kingfisher History of Encyclopediapages 62-67, 80-81

From the Local Library

Tools of the Ancient Romans by Rachel Dickinson (This is a really good book. My nine-year-old especially enjoyed it.)

Part of the reason I keep a blog is because being a stay-at-home mom can be lonely! So please reach out with a message, if you have a question or would like to chat. I usually write back within 24 hours, but please be patient.
