Last fall the kids and I spent a week creating various Hands-on Roman history projects. I’ve been slowly sharing bits and pieces of them over time, but I wanted to get them all out there and done. Besides, we have some other fun projects we’ve done, and I’d just as soon have all of our Roman history lessons together in one place.
That, and I’ve been writing a book on Hands on Roman History, so this is the outline for that book and topics I’m thinking about.
Future Ticia 2022 here, I did not write this book. I have notes and vague lessons written out, and I need to finalize it so I can publish all the different lessons. It’s a lot of work to get it done.

- Skippeo Africanus and Hannibal
- First Triumvirate

Hands-on Roman history projects
This of course is the heart and soul of the project, and we had a lot of fun creating these hands on projects.
