Language Lessons from Antiquity, Part 1, Level 3 is a Charlotte Mason inspired curriculum that teaches English and Ancient History simultaneously using living books as its base.

Part 1 covers the ancient history of Mesopotamia, Israel, Egypt and China from Creation to Kingdom (King Saul).

Two read aloud books are required to complete this course: The Bible (preferably KJV) and The Story of the Ancient World This latter book is available as an ebook from Nothing New Press (at this stage we are not stocking the hardcopy version). The Bible is taken as authoritative and is the main history text, with other read-alouds used to expand on that history.

Other read-aloud books are used and a detailed book list is included in the Teacher's Manual. It is recommended that you have as many of these as possible to enrich your child's learning of ancient history. Eight books we recommend using for this course are as follows:


Ancient Israel and Her Neighbors, which includes detailed narrative text together with hands on activities.

Unwrapping the Pharaohs, a historical account of the pharaohs as they fit with Biblical history written by an archaeologist.

Gilgamesh an ancient Mesopotamian epic story, which also includes a flood story.

Life in Ancient Mesopotamia 

Ancient Egypt Coloring Book

The Richest Man in Babylon, a fictional story of how things worked in Ancient Babylon and gives excellent cultural insight.

The Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt is a non Biblical account of the history of the pharaohs. Very interesting book.

The Golden Goblet is a fantastic historical fiction novel.
