Synopsis

The Illustrated History Encyclopedia Everyday Life in the Ancient World by John Haywood

This book looks at how people lived and worked through the ages. It is a visual guide to beliefs, trade, culture, entertainment, food and farming in the world's great civilizations. It offers fascinating facts about the lifestyles and skills of ancient societies, and how they developed through time. Step-by-step projects describe how to make necklaces, clothes, food and models inspired by the past. You can play an Indian board game, cook Celtic oatcakes and wear a Japanese theatrical mask. You can learn about food, materials, and early inventions such as the wheel - and discover what a Mesopotamian schoolboy packed in his lunchbox! More than 1500 photographs and illustrations show what life for these peoples was really like. This lively thematic history investigates many aspects of the world's civilizations and cultures. You can follow the development of art, leisure, beliefs and festivals, home life, work and trade through history and around the globe, from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, to China and India and the Americas.
