I haven‘t read a lot set solely in ancient times, but I have several on my TBR mountain. Lol.
I seem to read more ‘time spanning‘ historical fiction that starts BC and often goes up to the present day (or close).
The tagged is my favorite.

Also enjoyed Hawaii by Michener and loved both Sarum and London by Edward Rutherfurd.
I also enjoyed Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel

#Two4Tuesday Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView

At first I thought this read “21 years“ and I thought, well yes, of course, then I realized it was 2K,and I thought, well yes, of course 😂
1. I enjoy historical fiction, and setting in ancient times is fine, although I don't read it often -
2. Tagged book is the last book I read set in ancient times and I enjoyed it.

Make a great day everyone 🔱

TheSpineView Circe is a good book. Thanks for playing! 5d
WJCintron One historical fiction I loved, but not set during ancient times, is “Nemesis and the Swan” I recommend it. 😃👍 4d

1.Definitely,quite fascinating!
2.One of my favourite books,set during the Chola Empire in the 1st century AD,I cannot recommend it enough.Please read it, everyone! https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/4293918126
Also Agatha Christie's Death comes as the end, spectacular mystery set nearly 4000 years ago!I also like reading about the Roman Empire,so Robert Harris and Colleen Mcullough books are great.
Lovely prompt!

📚 I don't read that much historical fiction, but I've enjoyed the few I have read.

🌎 You know...I don't know that there are too many books set that far back that I've read! 😱 Clan of the Cave Bear comes to mind, and that was really good!

🌎 I would have to say London, by Edward Rutherford. It's historical fiction that follows the city of London from many many years ago to close to present day! It's fabulous!

Thanks for the tag @Deblovestoread
1. I love historical fiction but I don‘t tend to read much that far back.
2. The tagged is the only one I‘ve read set 2000 or more years ago. I enjoyed it.

Thanks for the tag, @Eggs ! ❤️❤️❤️

1. While I love historical fiction and history in general, over 2K years ago is not my usual era of interest. I‘ve read plenty of histories about the Romans, but not really any historical fiction.

2. I‘ve heard good things about the Flavia Albia mystery series by Lindsey Davis. Not sure if this is ancient enough, but I loved Signe Pike‘s The Lost Queen.

mabell I didn‘t think I‘d read any fiction set in ancient times, but then I remembered the Christie mystery 😄 5d
