Synopsis

The Maya and Other American Civilisations by Charlie Samuels

From building techniques and making textiles to creating accurate calendars and understanding the human body. Six books that show how each civilisation gradually developed their knowledge and applied it, making advances that would dramatically and permanently change how people lived. Covering the period from around 1000 BCE to 1550 CE, The Maya and Other American Civilisations looks at the technologies that were used in this area before European explorers and settlers arrived in South America. Including the Mayan calendars and pyramids, Aztec hieroglyphs and Inca writing systems, and developments in pottery, textiles, other crafts and weapons in this era. For readers aged 9+
