Synopsis

Shang Dynasty China by Franklin Watts, Tracey Kelly

Each book in Great Civilisations approaches its subject through a scene-setting spread Who/where were the...then introduces the achievements of the chosen civilisation through 12 structures or objects, each of which illustrates a key aspect or theme. Writing, architecture, industry, warfare, transport and learning are all covered in the same simple, colourful and engaging way. Fact boxes and panels present incidental information and point the reader to the importance of parallel developments in other parts of the world. Shang Dynasty China looks at one of the most fascinating and advanced ancient civilisations. Through structures as imposing as the tomb of a warrior queen or objects as beautiful and complex as a decorated bronze vessel, readers gain a picture of who was who in ancient China and how the civilisation in which they lived worked.
