Historical Setting: Ancient History

Take a peek into the lives of great men and women from times past and be inspired to do great things!

This collection of eight historical biographies presents the lives of ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary deeds in ancient times. Illustrated with stunning portraits, this inspiring compilation of stories describes with historical accuracy and age-appropriate content the quality character and unbending determination of the following figures:

  • Eve
  • Noah
  • Gilgamesh
  • Imhotep
  • Daniel
  • Cyrus the Great
  • Eratosthenes
  • Constantine

Whether read together as a family or alone, the What Really Happened... series is an ideal way to acquaint children ages eight to fourteen with historically accurate stories of inspiring individuals who changed our world.

Terri Johnson and her contributing authors have done it again! What Really Happened in Ancient Times is a compilation of stories which bring ancient history a little closer to home. From Eve to Constantine, fascinating tales are woven together to give us a better idea of what may have taken place so long ago. Historical records often only afford mere glimpses into the lives of those who lived thousands of years before us. By weaving what information we have available into colorful stories, ancient history comes alive! I love the illustrations in this volume, and of course, the map illustrations are second to none!
