WHAT DID PEOPLE DO BEFORE IT EXISTED

Giuliana Rotondi

AN EXPLORATION OF HISTORY AND SCIENCE THROUGH EVERYDAY OBJECT

 

How did Neolithic people store food without a fridge? And how did the ancient Romans communicate without phones? The history of mankind is peppered with great inventions; but before they came along, our ancestors had some amazing, original and often very weird solutions to their problems…

* An exploration of history and science, through the objects we take for granted in everyday life, which takes us back in time to show children the wonder that is scientific progress.

* Each double page explores a single invention, opening with a fun and easy definition of how and when it came into being.
