Über diesen Titel


Detailed cross-sections through a growing city, with each spread showing the city from the same viewpoint as it grows through the years. The reader is invited to spot the families who survive as the buildings change or fall down.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8. This introduction to archaeology presents cutaway views of a generic European city from the Stone Age to the present century. References are made to Roman occupation and Stonehenge-like structures and most of the drawings refer loosely to London or other English sites. The pictures are reminiscent of both Piero Ventura's small people and Martin Handford's Waldo, including the descendants of a red-headed family that surface in every picture. There is a wealth of information here, most of it in visual form supported by brief explanatory text, but neither medium is completely clear without the other. The Stone Age flint mine and middens appear in the slice throughout the centuries, and changes in architecture, lifestyle, transportation, and hygiene are obvious but not thoroughly demonstrated. Eleven two-page spreads, even on oversized paper, can only offer browsers a brief overview of so many centuries. This "slice of life" may be helpful to students of history when used in conjunction with other texts, and youngsters will enjoy poring over the pictures.

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
