This illustrated encyclopedia explores every aspect of human history from the growth of farming, work and trade through science, crafts and technology to the importance of art, culture and entertainment. Over 3000 photographs, illustrations, fact boxes and maps and more than 120 step-by-step projects involve the young reader in recreating the past as they build a pyramid, cook a meal from history or dress up in ancient armour. Making models and items helps the reader to a closer study of art, architecture, fashion and transport, and to understand more about the way ancient lives were shaped. This is a comprehensive, authoritative and stimulating encyclopedia and activity book. It is perfect as a home study aid or class textbook and an invaluable addition to any school or general library.
