All about ancient Assyria and Babylonia, this title comes with 15 step-by-step projects and more than 300 exciting pictures. Step back in time to explore the Land Between the Two Rivers, one of the most ancient of all civilizations. You can investigate how the Assyrians, Babylonians and Sumerians were among the first to develop writing, mathematics and the science of astronomy. It features 15 simple and enjoyable projects that allow you to re-create the past - build a model chariot, make a ram-headed drinking cup, and design a tunic fit for an Assyrian king. It includes fact boxes that provide extra information and indicate links with the present. It is packed with over 300 photographs and illustrations, including maps, cross sections and a pictorial timeline. It is ideal for home or school use for 8- to 12-year-olds. This is the perfect introduction to Mesopotamian history. There are sections on trade and technological advances, as well as social issues of the time, ranging from family life and beliefs to formal religion and royalty. Practical projects actively involve children in understanding and reconstructing the past: make a musical lyre, create a set of lion weights, and sculpt a clay tablet of cuneiform script. The book is stimulating, authoritative, and fun to use - the ideal way to learn how the Assyrian, Babylonian and Sumerian people lived their lives.
