If you know of any good books about Assyria, Babylon, the Medes and Persians, etc. please post their titles and authors here.
I have read several of her books, and they are very well done. I think she wrote about some of those civilizations, but mostly she wrote about ancient Briton up through the Roman days. I don't know which, if any of her titles were of other cultures.
Here are two other books I have.
Treasures Under the Sand by Alan Honour (about the archaeologist Leonard Woolley)
Hittite Warrior by Joanne Wiliamson (I have not read this yet, but my children did. On the back cover it says: "This meticulously researched novel is set in the time of the Judges, and incorporates Biblical facts with a gripping story, set against the wide background of ancient civilizations.")
ETA: links for R.S. bibliography
I think where my greatest weakness is right now is finding living books for the Assyrians, Babylonians, Medes & Persians. I did find a privately published book about ancient civilizations entitled The Story of the Ancient World by Christine Miller. It is a revision of H.A. Guerber 's The Story of the Chosen People. It's going to work well as the main history spine for my youngest child. Other than that, I'm relying on several books about creation and the flood that I got from Answers In Genesis.
Thanks for taking the time to help me.
