9780140261035: The Penguin Book of Firsts

As this book reveals, quite often, firsts in world history are attributed to the wrong people. Many "modern " ideas and inventions actually date back to ancient times. The use of steroids can be traced back to the Sung Dynasty, and oral contraceptives were popular in Ancient Greece.
