Hi, I'm very interested in Ancient history, and so I would be interested to read more into the subject, so far, in terms of serious books, I have read:-

- Decline and fall of the Roman Empire - Gibbon
- History of the Peloponassion War - Thulcydides
- Histories - Herodotus

So, if anyone could give me any further titles or authors to read, it would be very helpful.

PS - I hope this is in the correct forum, so feel free to move it if it isn't


Regards

Orwell

Gibbon's decline and fall - takes ages to read though!

By Histories do you mean Herodotus?

Europe, A History is very good - but obviously only on europe.

I find the best way to get good history books is to go into borders and browse - always works for me

This reading list has pretty much every book you'll ever need to read on it, divided by topic and with a set of 'general' texts to get you started:
