Find Out About Ancient Egypt, Rome & Greece Exploring the Great Classical Civilizations, with 60 Step-by-step Projects and 1500 Exciting Images by Charlotte Hurdman, Philip Steele, Richard Tames

This title explores the ancient cultures that shaped human history and civilization. It vividly portrays key periods from the past, with glimpses into art, fashion, crafts, trade and warfare. It contains inside-view artworks of palaces and humble homes, and insights into the everyday lives of monarchs, priests, farmers, traders and children of long ago. It includes 60 practical projects for historical models, costumes and recipes - construct a miniature Parthenon, don the uniform of a Roman legionary, and bake pastries from an age-old Egyptian recipe. It features an exciting and authoritative reference for home or school use by 8- to 12-year-olds. This authoritative reference and project book will enrich your knowledge and understanding of the past. Witness the progression of human civilization, and see what gave each culture - from the Stone Age to the Roman Empire - its particular identity. Over 1500 photographs and illustrations include inside-view artworks of important buildings from history, such as a Pharaoh's tomb, an ancient Greek home and a Roman bath. Projects include a model Egyptian boat, a miniature stonehenge, a Roman toga and the Greek game of knucklebones.
