Here’s a unique atlas that charts major periods from the ancient world to today. It covers religion, exploration, wars, colonization, kingdoms, famous people, technology and a whole lot more.
A very comprehensive book of maps and photographic features, this volume offers an excellent overview of the periods covered. It’s a great starting point for a more detailed study.
I can’t really think of any.
The young lady who looked at this book loved it!
Reaction: I found this to be a very appealing volume with much to recommend it. I liked the maps with historical icons and the textual information.
This photo-illustrated atlas offers kids a perspective of history with maps of many varieties, not just geography.
The maps in the book - and the breadth of time it covers - offers readers a chance to explore history in different ways and in different subject areas.

Buy. Every school and public library should have a copy of this book but it is so much fun that I’d want my own copy at home as well.
