Books Info:

The Kingfisher Atlas of the Ancient World free pdf Featuring seventeen beautiful, hand-illustrated maps and packed with fascinating information to feed children's interest in the ancient world, "The Kingfisher Atlas of the Ancient World" is perfect for all children aged 8 and over. A short introductory section gives a simple overview of the ancient world, explaining that the first major civilizations grew up as long ago as 8000BCE, and that many fascinating civilizations rose and fell during ancient times. It explains how we know about these people and places - from art, artefacts, ruined buildings and written evidence. The main section of the book examines a selection of major ancient civilizations in turn. Each main spread is dominated by an attractive, newly commissioned hand-illustrated map featuring pictorial icons which give a real flavour of the civilization it covers. Clear, accessible text introduces the civilization and its history before going on to describe interesting details about that culture's people and the objects and buildings they have left behind. Full-colour photographs add to each spread's appeal. In addition to the main spreads, a small number of feature spreads throughout the book focus more closely on a well-known civilization, allowing readers to build on their interest and find out more about ever-popular topics such as the ancient Egyptians and imperial Rome. This atlas is a great reference tool that young children will find attractive and enjoyable to use at home and at school, where it will make an ideal accompaniment to other history books. Children will enjoy discovering about ancient peoples and places and finding out who inhabited the world in ancient times.
