Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
ea. vol: 48p. charts. diags. illus. bibliog. chron. (History of Everyday Things Series). CIP. Bedrick, dist. by Harper. July 1985. PSm $12.95. Gr 6-8 Densely illustrated, tersely written, these two volumes are fascinating. The first book covers the period of 4,000,000 b.c. to 300 b.c. and includes chapters on Ice Age hunters, Minoan Crete, China, the Etruscans and the Greeks. The second covers the years 50 b.c. to 1300 a.d. and includes the Celts, Anglo-Saxons, Byzantium, Arabs in Europe, the Vikings, Monastic living and a Medieval town. Hundreds of color drawings depict tools, artifacts, dress, weapons and lodging, recreating the domestic side of these civilizations. Illustrations and diagrams are accompanied by detailed legends; paragraphs of text basically set the historical framework, explaining major points in each civilization. A chronology with page numbers appearing at the back of each book clarifies the sense of time covered and acts as a sort of index. The books' British origin is most evident in the metric measurements and the bibliography. Students will find much, however, to flesh out reports or add a sense of realism to more standard historical works. These are excellent additions to R. J. Unstead's See Inside a Roman Town (1978) and See Inside a Castle (1979, both Warwick; o.p.), which are aimed at a younger audience and C. H. Quennell's Everyday Life in Roman and Anglo-Saxon Times (Batsford, 1969) and Fiona MacDonald's Everyday Life in the Middle Ages (Silver, 1984), which are not as heavily illustrated. Elisabeth LeBris, Kenilworth Public School System, Ill.
