The HTA Ancient History Study Guide (new syllabus) is written for the NSW Ancient History Syllabus and addresses recent changes examined for the first time at the 2019 HSC.

It presents detailed outlines for the most popular Ancient History topics and includes a wide range of maps, summary tables, diagrams and resource lists. The chapter dealing with the Core Study, Cities of Vesuvius - Pompeii and Herculaneum, is longer than usual and provides source activities and summary templates. The Personality chapters include approaches to the new Source Study.
