Description
An exciting pictorial atlas of past civilizations -- exploring the history of the ancient world from the Sumerians in 3500 BC to the Incas in AD 1500. Where did Alexander the Great fight the war elephants of King Poros? Who were the Assyrians and where did they live? How far did the Roman Empire stretch? Where did the Maya build their temples and palaces? The Atlas of Ancient Worlds reveals all this information, and much more. This new pictorial atlas looks at life in the ancient world -- from the great cultures of Greece, Rome, and the Middle east to the glittering cities of India, China, and the ancient Americas. Each civilization is illustrated with a beautiful full-color map featuring realistic scenes of how people lived and what crops they grew, their religious rituals and battle sites, as well as the trade routes that helped spread ideas and religions from one region to another. Lively text traces the progress and discoveries of each civilization and provides dramatic detail about the power struggles of ambitious rulers. Accurate reconstructions show the extraordinary architectural skill behind great structures, including the Parthenon in Greece the Great Wall of China, and the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan. To complete the picture, stunning color photographs display the jewelry, tools, and weapons, architectural remains, and early writings that have helped experts piece together the story of the past. Packed with fascinating information and outstanding artwork, The Atlas of Ancient Worlds takes the reader on an exciting journey back in time.
