Product description

Get ready for a time-travelling trip into the history of humankind!

How People Lived is a colourful journey through life in different eras, from prehistory to the present and beyond. In dynamic visual snapshots of daily life in different times and cultures, it shows some of the things that have remained constant, as well as the amazing degree to which things have changed. From cavemen wading through rock pools to today’s space-age society, a universe of contrasts awaits! You’ll travel from cave homes to Egyptian temples, Roman towns and medieval Chinese villages; from a Sultan’s palace to the Industrial Revolution and a modern mega-city. Amazing drawings and spotting games provide a wealth of facts on clothes, customs and much more, while timelines, maps and charts offer background and context.
