Is this page any help for Common Entrance teachers?

Having been given a nudge by a teacher who is beginning to teach a Common Entrance form in a prep school after Christmas, I looked up the non-linguistic syllabus and cobbled together a page of links to sites that might be helpful. It's
here.

It's not finished yet, but there are 27 hand-picked links there already, on such topics as the Roman house layout, Roman entertainments, heroes and heroines of early Rome, Theseus and the Minotaur and so on. Some, like the Greek mythology links, lead to sites that pupils would enjoy. Others, like the Livy translations, will be more for teachers.

What textbook would C.E. teachers recommend for the non-linguistic part of the syllabus? Please use the Comment facility to post your suggestions. Thanks.
