From the Big Bang to the present day, illustrated scenes tell the history of our planet in one continuous story. This is a perfect introduction to history for young and old, an illustrated journey that takes you through our world’s culture and events from the Big Bang to the iPod and into the future.
This is a trip through time, past dinosaurs, Vikings, Aztecs and spaceships. It looks at wars and disasters; introduces artists, explorers and leaders; shows us living in castles, yurts and skyscrapers. And it does not neglect the imagination—here too are dragons, mythical figures and TV characters, alongside world-changing inventions borne from the imaginations of scientists and explorers. Each scene puts global events in perspective, in space and time.
A best-selling book since its launch, this is a modern day classic that will be much-admired by all ages. Impossible to age so take a chance, it is a masterpiece!
