This book helps children understand the past through paintings, murals, sculpture, architecture, and everyday objects much of it originally designed for placating the gods, bringing a successful harvest, observing traditions and rites, or increasing an individual's social standing. The book is divided into thematic chapters such as how people lived, worked, socialized, fought wars, worshipped, and made new discoveries and conquests. Intriguing sidebars expand on the text and open fascinating new avenues of investigation. The generously stocked backmatter includes a timeline, a glossary, suggestions for further information, and a reading list.
