This book helps you discover the long-ago world of the first humans. You can find out about what ancient humans ate, where they lived, the kinds of shelter they used, what tools they invented, how they related to the world around them and how they survived. Special feature panels provide information on the archaeological finds that give us our knowledge of this prehistoric world today. Clear specially commissioned maps show the major historical sites of early human development and place these in context. It comes with over 200 illustrations, maps and photographs. Imagine life in a distant age, a time when the first people hunted with sticks and spears made from wood and stone. Discover the prehistoric world and find out what it was like to live through the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, and how the first settled communities grew up. Did you know that the earliest pottery was invented in Japan around 12,500 years ago, or that the Neanderthal people buried their dead with ritualistic ceremonies? Learn about this and much more in this fascinating family reference book for 8- to 12-year-olds.
