Description

Take a boat trip down ancient Egypt's crocodile-infested Nile river or a chariot ride through ancient Rome, circa. a.d. 128, and don't forget to make the customary sacrifice at the altar outside the door before entering the Parthenon in ancient Greece. And, above all, try to avoid becoming a human sacrifice yourself if you dare visit the Aztec temple in Tenochtitlan! Written and organized in the style of a travel guide, this book takes the reader on an amazing tour of the greatest empires of the past and explores what it was really like to be a citizen of these intriguing civilizations. Packed full of useful information for would-be tourists as well as quirky sightseers' tips, this is a stimulating way for children to learn about history.show more
