Can anyone help

Recommended Posts

I love historical fiction, particularly with an ancient setting. (Please no more Tudors or Victorians, I beg you.) I finished L.M. Affrossman's Simon's Wife recently, which is set in the first century AD, and loved it. Can anyone recommend anything around this time or before?

I, Claudius, Claudius the God by Robert Graves

 

Set in 1st Century AD, The books were made into a miniseries on PBS.

Pompeii by Robert Harris set in the 1st century BC, and The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller is a retelling of the story of Achilles and Patroclus in the Trojan War (which I think was 12C or 13C BC?)

Also by Robert Harris, the Cicero trilogy (Imperium, Lustrum and Dictator) are set in Roman times and very good in my opinion.
