Take an enthralling journey from the Stone Age onwards to see how our ancestors became great builders and rulers. Just for starters, they grew food, discovered metals, made tools and invented writing - and it all led to...
a mighty civilization in Egypt
wise Chinese philosophy
Maya culture in central America
the colossal Roman Empire
...and much more. The story unfolds against fun, illustrated maps showing what's happening where at any time - so while Santorini is erupting violently in Greece, flushing loos are being invented in the Indus Valley (Pakistan). The sky's the limit in our eventful history!
