Grade 6 curriculum: Ancient Rome.

Ancient Rome
 by Charles Kovacs
Cost is about R100 to R150 depending on the exchange rate. Book Depository does not charge for shipping. Loot shipping is free for orders over R230 so even if the exchange rate is not doing too well, it might still be cheaper to buy from Book Depository if you are getting a single book.

'This book includes the most exciting stories of Roman history: the founding of Rome, the early battles against Hannibal and the Carthaginians, Julius Caesar's conquests of Gaul and Britain, Antony and Cleopatra, the decline and fall of the Empire, and the beginning of the Dark Ages.'
