Archaeologists peel back layers of dirt to reveal level after level of human habitation and settlement. See what's occurred on one street throughout history without getting dirty with DK's revised-&-updated A Street Through Time. Beginning in the Stone Age at 10,000 BCE and moving through the Iron Age (600 BCE), Roman Times (100 CE), Medieval Period (1400s), Early Industrialization (1800s), through today, each new era will reveal the different aspects of living in that time.
Panoramic illustrations with highly detailed, cut-away houses provide an inside look at the churches, homes, food production, diseases, justice system, and the people who lived in each time. As time goes on, kids will see how some structures remain (like an ancient barrow), while others slowly rot away (like a Roman fort), as well as how rooms in the same building change over time. . . plus, on every page, they can keep an eye out for a hidden time traveler who's just waiting to be spotted! 45 pages with glossary, index, and timeline, hardcover with dust jacket. 10.25" x 12.25".
Revised and updated for a new generation!
In a series of fourteen intriguing illustrations, the award-winning A Street Through Time tells the story of human history by exploring a street as it evolves from 10,000 BCE to the present day.
Watch the landscape and daily lives of the street's inhabitants change, as the small settlement grows into a city, is struck by war and plague, and gains trade and industry. Throughout, children are asked to study the photos in order to find a time traveler in each scene, as well as to pick out interesting details, encouraging them to pore over the unique illustrations and more easily learn about the historical background.
