This book presents ancient history with excellent color illustrations, photographs, maps and information to create a visual feast! History is presented according to civilization geographically (rather than jumping from nation to nation chronologically), making it so much easier to follow and remember. Another incredible feature is that it is internet-linked! You can visit age-appropriate internet sites from reputable universities and museums throughout the world and get up-to-date information and exciting activities such as printing out your name in hieroglyphics or actually listening to a famous speech online. Usborne reviews all links and keeps them up-to-date. Paperback, ages 11 to adult.
