Discover what it was really like to sail the Seven Seas in a creaking timber pirate ship, and explore the dark, mysterious world of monsters, where they come from, their special powers and nasty habits. Journey into the afterlife by exploring the tombs of warrior kings and mummies of beautiful princesses, and read about how ordinary people were once put to death for being witches just because they looked different or behaved oddly.
Learn about times gone by, from the seafaring life of Vikings to the medieval world of castles, jousts and jesters. Read about the pioneers who set out for a new life in the Wild West of America, and explore the cultures of the Sioux, Blackfoot and other native American tribes they encountered along the way.
Each book contains hands-on step-by-step projects to make history come alive. Easy-to-follow photographs show you how to dress like a medieval lady, build a model castle, cook a cowboy meal, make Native American jewellery, create your own Egyptian tomb paintings, make a labyrith or a shaman's rattle... and much, much more.
