What developments in government and politics, food and farming, architecture, science, art and medicine were there in the classical world of the Ancient Greeks, Celts and Romans and how did these compare with those made during the same time period by the Mauryan Empire and the Qin and Han Dynasties? What was happening at the same time in the Americas? Packed with beautiful illustrations, this book, in the Parallel History series for readers upwards of age nine, will help you to explore the classical world chronologically, with timelines to show you when major events and achievements took place.
