Introducing The World in Ancient Times, a one-of-a-kind series that combines the knowledge of scholars of ancient history with the storytelling know-how of writers of young adult fiction. Each book is made up of 24 to 26 chapters short and lively enough to hold the attention of a middle-schoolstudent. Each chapter is based on one or more primary sources from antiquity, such as a quote from an ancient historian, a well-worn coin, a piece of pottery, or a partly crumbled wall. These pieces of evidence are clues from which the authors reconstruct the world in ancient times. Most historybooks tell what we know; by using actual quotes and curious objects from the past, The World in Ancient Times hooks young readers into the story of not only Iwhat we know but the often more interesting tale of how we know it.
