This volume traces the extraordinary evolution of our world, from the formation of Earth to the beginnings of human history, and looks at some of the amazing creatures that once inhabited our globe. It chronicles when life first appeared on Earth, why dinosaurs died out and how people survived the last Ice Age, covering a period up to 10,000BC. The book offers colourful maps showing the changing shapes of continents, the movement of people around the world and the development of life on Earth and presents detailed reconstructions and photographs of prehistoric artefacts. The "World History" series covers a wide range of countries and civilizations and offers a wealth of pictures and information. Thoroughly researched and written especially for children, four volumes cover a vast expanse of time, from the creation of the Earth to the dawn of the 21st century. Other titles in the series include "Ancient World", "Medieval World" and "The Last 500 Years".show more
