    I purchased this book to utilize with our homeschooling curriculum "Introduction to World History." Ancient Science covers science from pre historic time to the discovery of the Americas. Each section covers a particular period of history with experiments to compliment the historical setting. We are planning to use Ancient Science, Usborne Book of World History, Usbsorne Time Traveler and Usborne Vistor's Guide to the Ancient World for our science and history curriculum this coming school year.

    This book is secular and teaches evolution, that man evolved from "humanoid apes"(see p.6). I am selectivley using the experiments, but the children are not given the book to read. The science experiments are easily understood and explained.
