    Description
    How did early peoples around the world approach construction, communication, computing, transportation, agriculture, machinery, medicine, and warfare? This fascinating, easy-to-read series gives young readers a close-up look at how the ancients got things done. Each book takes a basic technology and shows how it was handled, from hunter-gatherer societies to the ancient Americas, Egypt, China, India, Greece, Rome, and more.
