Synopsis

The Viking 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 the Vikings lived then and the present day. It is packed with over 300 colour photographs and illustrations, which add a high degree of visual impact to aid learning and make information accessible at many different levels. The illustrations include cross-sections, historical maps, building constructions and a pictorial timeline. Step back in time to the world of the seafaring Vikings. Discover fascinating facts about their way of life - the ships they sailed in, distant lands they travelled to, and the wars they waged. This is the perfect introduction to Viking history, for school or home study, for reference and for practical learning. Divided into basic sections such as Settlement, Families, Food, Transport, Trade, Weapons and Art and Music, the book is authoritative, accessible and fun to use, and the 15 step-by-step practical projects are the perfect way for children aged 8-to-12 years to really understand how these amazing people led their lives.
