Ancient History for Homeschool

I started writing Ancient History for Homeschool as a tool for my own children. I had a difficult time finding a free online program that had the information that I wanted to share in my homeschooling curriculum for my kids. I have tried to use many sources, including books, websites and experts that I know personally. I write each post in a simple way, and try to include review questions that can be answered with simple one line answers, or used as writing prompts for longer essays.
