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.
