Synopsis

Step into the Inca World by Philip Steele

This book includes 15 step-by-step projects, which enable you to recreate the past and learn through experience while having fun. The fascinating fact boxes provide extra insights and highlight links between the way Incas lived then and life in the present day. Ideal for home or school use for 8-to-12 year olds, it is a stimulating and practical reference book. The illustrations include cross-sections, historical maps, building constructions and a pictorial timeline. Step back in time to discover the spectacular world of the Incas and their ancestors. Successors to the Chimu gold workers and the Tiwanaku lake people, the Incas ruled the most spectacular empire South America has ever seen. The land of the Sun God was bright with many treasures houses of gold, the most fabulous clothes and huge stone buildings. This book uncovers the secrets of the mummy bundles, the mystery of the giant lines in the Nazca desert and the intricate rope bridges high in the Andes Mountains. Projects actively involve the reader in understanding the past: make a reed boat that really floats, create an Inca drum and design a tunic fit for an emperor.
