Children's Literature
Spanning thousands of years of world history, Madgwick covers civilizations from the river valleys to the Celts of Ireland and the Mayas of Central America. Each civilization's double page sections contain background information, fascinating questions, and a Quick-fire Quiz. Could the Phoenicians read and write? Our present day alphabet is based on their symbols. Who drove war chariots? Both the Hittites and Assyrians raced into battle on these wheeled vehicles. Who invented the compass? Why this and paper were created by the skilled Chinese. These are but a few of the hundreds of questions and answers included in this book, which is part of a new series. Young researchers will learn about Roman amphitheaters, Alexander the Great, the terra-cotta army and the legendary Minotaur. A timeline and excellent illustrations complement the text, making this a great classroom resource. 2000, Kingfisher,
