Overview

Recent scientific breakthroughs make it possible to know what people looked like in China 500,000 years ago, or how tribes reared their children in Texas 8,000 years ago, or how priestesses performed sacrifices 1,600 years ago. You've probably heard of the "Iceman" of 3,000 B.C. who was found almost perfectly preserved in a glacier. That's only the beginning—you can see artists' drawings and read expert explanations about what it was like to be a warrior queen in 500 B.C., a Roman sailor in the time of Christ, or a teenager who died in the wars of the Roses. Know—and see—how your ancestors ate, dressed, built their homes and villages, worshipped, played games, and made war and love.
