This History Resource
Trace the seven major civilizations of Rome, Greece, Israel, Egypt, China, India, and Persia from 4500 B.C. to the time of Augustus Caesar in 44 B.C. and culminating in 14 A.D. Within this timeframe readers will learn not only the stories of Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, and Marc Antony, but also the historian Livy and how Virgil came to write the Aeneid. Readers will then travel all over the world to learn what was happening at this same time in China, Persia, India and so on. The detailed pen and ink drawings are fresh and appealing, and the illustrated timelines give a clear sense of chronology, enriching the engaging text.
