My students in the history of ed just read through the entire volume and found it readable, informative and helpful. It offers an excellent survey of key primary sources with very clear introductions or contextual overviews to almost every passage included. The editors also provided up-to-date recommendations for further reading of the works of leading scholars and other secondary sources that are spot on. The selections, structure, and coverage are complete, reasonable and pedagogically helpful. Kudos to the editors.

"Excellent - broad, thorough investigation into education in the ancient world, from Egypt to Greece and Rome" - by Jeri (Idaho)
The title of the book neatly captures the way the Romans and Greeks regarded education. Learning would not be easy, according to Lucian, but would require the sort of disciple and hard work it would take to become proficient in athletics.

There tended to be three stages of education, somewhat vaguely corresponding to our grammar, high school and university, but without schools, and with all sorts of specialized instructors for subjects such as mathematics or geometry, and then later, philosophy and rhetoric. Nor was education available for every child. Quite the contrary. Slaves and the children of the rural poor might never spend a day in school.

"Education was based on the transmission of an established body of knowledge, about which there was wide consensus...to lead to...understanding...inherited doctrine" (p 8). We have school handbooks in Greek and Latin but the evidence for the ... full review

If you want to discover captivating stories of people and events of the Byzantine Empire then keep reading... Free History BONUS Inside!

The Byzantine Empire was founded during the chaotic third century. It was the time when revolts and civil wars were common, and Roman emperors merely lasted for a year. Despite being one of the most captivating historical periods of all time, the Byzantine Empire is a lesser known one and it's rare to find a page-turning resource on the topic.

But that is about to change. In this new captivating history book, you will...explore a story of power and glory, anarchy and order, paganism and Christianity, war and peace, the West and the East get familiar with the roots of the greatest controversies that defined the ... full review

"Not just the "lapbook" portion of Mythology study" - by Mrs. Phun
We bought this for my 3rd grader to launch her career as a homeschooler. I let her choose the first unit study and she chose Greek Mythology. So...keep in mind that I'm a rookie HS mom when you read this review...

Likes: Great images, great instructions, appropriately aged
Dislikes: Obscure characters for a 3rd grade level study. (I know - the instructions say 4-6 and I think they mean it, LOTS of reading)

I think this would be great as a quick, stand-alone project. The stories for each character require a reasonable amount of reading. As with all mythological characters, there are numerous stories tied to each character. Thus, you MUST read the stories in this book for the activity to make sense, otherwise it may be a story that you have not yet heard. For example, Persephone's story required us to read it, although ... full review

"Roman Mythology: A Captivating Guide to Roman..." - by Valencia Redd
What a great way to learn more about Roman Mythology! Clayton takes a subject which because of its span could be rather boring and makes it quite interesting. I knew a bit before about how the Romans borrowed mythology and gods from many of cultures the Greeks, the Etruscans, etc. and made them their own, but I still learned more about this. A very interesting book about Roman Mythology. An interesting and educational read, check it out.

"Love this Book" - by Kendall A. Childs (Woodland Hills, CA USA)
I discovered this resource about ten years ago and I have used it ever since. It is a great way to introduce stuggling readers to the world of mythology. It is a great way for students to read about the Illiad and to introduce The Odyssey to students before reading the actual text. I teach high school and it works well with my ninth grade Languge Arts classes as an introduction to classic liturature. This book has maps, questions you can use for journal writings, activities and vocabulary.

"From beginning to end" - by Sarah Marie (USA)
Like many other civilizations they start off in a tribal format, went to cities the on to a single main ruler (with others involved, of course) then on to an expansionist period and finally a gradual decline.

There was a whole lot of brothers killing brothers to prevent them from getting to the throne. As with any culture there were both good rulers and bad rulers and even some horrific rulers.

One thing that makes this different, though, is that there was the 'Sultanate of Women' where women ended up actually being the power. The book also points out how the harem was actually not the stereotype people have today.

Another interesting point is that under Osman III Christians and Jews had to wear recognizable badges and clothes, predating the Nazi approach of the star the Jews had to wear, showing how history can repeat itself even in specific details.

During WWI there were ... full review

"More mythology, more Roman mythology" - by Bonnie DALE Keck
kindle unlimited, listed several below having to do with this mythology and others, some individual some in sets

If you're looking for a collection of Roman myths that speaks to all ages then keep reading…
Feats of strength and skill, monsters, magic, divine interventions, and the overcoming of impossible odds by larger-than-life figures all feature in this book.

The Roman myths contained in this collection will be brought to life so all the details are more than merely a bunch of dry facts. Not only does this book offer captivating stories for you to enjoy, but it also gives you impressive knowledge about history. For example, the story of the rape of Lucretia, an incident that supposedly sparked the revolt against the early Roman monarchy and led to the development of the early Republic, may have been based on actual historical persons and events.

"Those who ignore history have to repeat it." - by Niucame
This is a really great book. This book was created as a act of scientific history. Besides being very interesting in it's own right, the book relates many circumstances that strongly relate to current events in the US. Despite having a different style of presentation, it sometimes reminded me of Machiavelli's two great books, The Prince and Discourses, wherein Machiavelli uses Roman history extensively to illustrate various points. Carrier gives a very good analysis of the decline of science and advent of Roman mediocrity around 300 AD in Rome as the nature of their society changed. I can imagine that certain of the religious groups in the US could feel that they are being singled out by this author as those same religious groups are acting in the very same way that the early Christians did in Rome and with probably the same consequences ... full review
