Yes, it is fairly difficult to find good stories set in ancient times without bringing in some questionable topics. That's my guess as to why there are fewer history-related recommendations in CTG than other years. Another possibility might be that there are just fewer books set in those time periods.
* You can follow the lead of CTG read-alouds (by Patricia St. John) and just take this year to read various good stories unrelated to history.
* You could use the list of classics in the back of the manual or other books you might have on your shelf.
* You could use books from ECC or other manuals you have on hand, if you didn't get to reading all of them.
* I know my son enjoyed reading funny stories one year, such as Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and Pippi.
* Here are a few threads that might give you some ideas, too:

More Book Basket ideas (magazines, Christmas might overlap with CTG books a bit, etc.)
