Meet the… Ancient Egyptians

The book starts off with a map and background information which explains how Egypt was united into one Kingdom by Menes. This civilisation then lasted for over 3,000 years!

Learn all about family life, the Pharaohs and Egyptian gods and answer questions such as: how old was Tutankhamun when he became pharaoh? Or, what would Egyptian doctors give you to drink if you became ill?

Meet the… Ancient Romans

Starting with the myth of Romulus and Remus to explain the beginnings of the city of Rome, then moving on to a fascinating run-down of the Mad, bad and great who at various points ran the mighty Roman Empire.

This book is absolutely crammed full of information and facts about some of their amazing inventions that we still use today, the legendary Roman army and the thrilling chariot races.
