WHAT DID PEOPLE DO BEFORE IT EXISTED

Giuliana Rotondi

An exploration of history and science through everyday objects.

 

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.
