The Seventy Great Inventions of the Ancient World by



Description:

Beginning with basic technologies including stone tools, pottery and metallurgy, this selection covers many less obvious, but no less crucial inventions such as eyed needles that made warm clothing possible or the camel saddle that opened the Sahara to long-distance trade. The five richly illustrated sections on technologies, transportation, hunting and warfare, art and science and personal adornment range across time from prehistory to 500 CE in the Old World and the fall of the Aztecs (1520 CE) in the Americas.
