A Street Through TimeBook - 1998
Have you ever wondered what your street was like hundreds and hundreds of years ago? in this book you can follow the life of one such street. You will see it develop from a small Stone Age camp - changing over thousands of years - into a bustling riverside thoroughfare in the heart of a metropolis. This beautifully illustrated book brings fourteen key periods in history to life. You will see magnificent buildings go up and come down, new churches built on the site of ancient temples, wooden bridges destroyed and then remade in stone, and statues demolished, then unearthed many years later. But incredibly, some buildings do survive and remain centuries later in the heart of a modern city. You'll find out, too, how people lived long ago - the tools they used, what they wore, what they ate, and what they did all day. The lively text provides a fascinating and factual insight to the pictorial story, and also suggests lots of hidden details to spot. in addition, you can search for the time traveller in each period, and locate the objects that have managed to survive through the ages. A Street Through Time is crammed with details of life in the past. The more you look, the more you'll see.
