    Hi luannw,

    Thanks for pointing this out. Great catch by your daughter.

    This is the first error we have seen in the Famous Men series so, hopefully, this will be the only one you find.

    Famous Men of Greece problem

    I did a little research and discovered that Pyrrhus actually died in 272 B.C., not 287. We're glad to know the answer to our question, but now I question these sources. This is the first "Famous Men" book we have used. Are they full of these types of errors?
    Thanks in advance for any information about their reliability that anyone can give.

    Famous Men of Greece problem

    I was reading FMOG to my 9 year-old daughter, and on page 130 it says that Pyrrhus died in 287 B.C. The very next section says that Archimedes was born in 287 B.C. and "was only a boy when Pyrrhus was in Sicily helping the Carthaginians fight the Sicilians." My daughter stopped me and asked how that could be since Pyrrhus died the year Archimedes was born. What is the correct information? My daughter is very detail-oriented and really wants to know. Thank you.
