Follow the development of human civilization around the world, in 1500 illustrations
This book takes the reader through time, showing the reality of what it was like to live in the past. It investigates human existence from prehistoric times to life in the modern world. In its pages you can discover how humans populated the world, how organised farming started, and how food was first grown and harvested so that communities were formed. Learn how discoveries in science and medicine increased our lifespan, and improved the quality and effectiveness of our lives over the centuries. The development of human civilization is explained in a lively and accessible visual style, using artworks, pictures and diagrams to show how great cities were built and destroyed, wars lost and won, new religions born, and how advances in science and exploration transformed everyday life and the living environment.
