HISTORY OF THE WORLD IN 1,000 OBJECTS
From the clothing and adornment worn by people of the earliest societies, to a multicolored official mandate from imperial China, to the watch Napoleon used to synchronize with his generals at Waterloo, this visually stunning compendium assembles objects that reveal how our ancestors lived, what they believed and valued, and how these items helped shape world history. Full-color photos are augmented by concise text that provides historical context along with timelines and maps that make it easy to compare how people lived at different times in different parts of the world.
