Trying to imagine what life was like for people thousands of years ago is difficult for readers 8 to 12 (and indeed, most adults), and so this comprehensive book brings the ancient world to life with informative texts, crafts, and 1500 illustrations. Included here are accessible accounts of the development of art, religions, home life, and trade in Egypt, Greece, Rome, China, India, and the Americas. Step-by-step projects describe play an Indian board game, cook Celtic oatcakes, and create a Japanese theatrical mask, plus ideas for making necklaces, clothes, food and models inspired by the past.
