Description

"Historica" shows the evolution of people's lives over the past thousand years, and shows how dramatically the world has changed. In the year 1000 most people lived in rural areas; cities were small and grew around cathedrals or fortresses or castles; transport was by horse and cart; most people were illiterate; education was usually only for wealthy boys and was conducted by the church; and people's roles in life were strictly limited by their place in society. At that time in 'undiscovered' parts of the world, such as North America, New Zealand and Australia, the indigenous peoples lived in much the same way as their ancestors had for centuries, their lives tuned to the changes in the seasons, and living at one with nature. Today the world is a very different place. "Historica" tells the story of the wars, invasions, discoveries, exploration and the amazing people who played a key part in all these events that have brought us to where we are today. Examining the world from 1000 through to today, "Historica" is divided into sections based on periods of time. Within each section there are four streams: Milestone events; The Arts; Science, Lifestyle. The book takes you around the world, continent by continent, on a journey through time.show more
