Discover the world of the first people -- from the earliest cave dwellers to the men and women of the Iron Age.
Here is an original and exciting new look at the fascinating world of ancient people and their ways of life. Stunning real-life photographs of tools, weapons, jewelry, clothing and even the remains of the people themselves offer a unique "eyewitness" view of how human life changed during its first four million years. See the tools used by the first farmers, the oldest surviving food, the weapons of a Bronze Age chieftain, and what our earliest ancestors looked like. Learn why humans first stood upright, how people survived the cold of the Ice Age, how scientists uncovered the Piltdown Man hoax, how to make a flint axehead, and which people used magic to find their food. Discover how early people hunted and gathered their food, which people made jewelry out of leopards' teeth and hornets' wing cases, how bread was made in the Bronze Age, how mummies and bog bodies have been preserved, and much, much more!
