It contains fascinating fact boxes that provide extra insights and highlight links with the present. It is packed with over 340 photographs and illustrations, including historical maps and a pictorial timeline, this is perfect for school or home use by children aged 8 to 12. Successors to the Chimu gold workers and the Tiwanaku lake people, the Incas ruled the most spectacular empire South America has ever seen. The so-called Land of the Sun God was bright with treasure houses of precious metals, the most fabulous clothes and huge stone buildings. A variety of step-by-step projects enable you to bring this past age to life - beat on an Inca drum, make a model granary, and recreate a Chimu ceremonial knife. This is the ideal introduction to South American history, for study, reference and practical learning.
