Grade 4-8-A look at the innovative tools and methods used by Egyptians and Romans. Each two-page spread focuses on a different skill and accomplishment in the areas of weaving, metalwork, food production, transportation, and building, among others. Illustrations include full-color reproductions of artwork, photographs of artifacts, and line drawings. There are several activities that students can try using the same techniques as the ancients. While there is not enough information for general reports on the cultures, these titles will serve as excellent supplements to broader texts. Children may also enjoy reading these books just for fun.
