    I just purchased Guerber Ancient World and wonder if I would read the Greek and Roman books alongside the Ancient World book or is it best to just read them one after the other?

    Thanks! Brooke

    Hmmm, . . . great question. You probably could read them alongside each other, but if you do I would recommend you take several years to work through them. Each of those Guerber books has a LOT of chapters.

    If you want to try to combine them, I would probably do just the Ancient World and Ancient Greece to begin with, then add in Ancient Rome as you get farther along and come to its time period.

    Ancient World covers 4000BC to 331BC

    Ancient Greece covers 2250BC to 146BC

    Ancient Rome covers 1800BC to AD 476

    Bottom line: it’s do-able if taken in small doses and spread out over a long time, but it might be easier to go one after the other.

    Anybody else have an opinion on this question?


    I was just not smart enough to figure out a way to layer them all together, it made my head hurt to think about it. 🙂 I just did them one at a time but when we made our Book of Centuries pages, we saw what was happening concurrently. It made more sense to us, because although all of these cultures certainly did impact each other, each still has its own “story”, at least it seemed so to us. Our pages with dates and timeline figures and all worked out the kinks, like “Oh, so and so and so and so lived at the same time!”

    Just my take!
