1 New & Used Starting at $12.49


What do you think of when you hear the word technology? You probably think of something totally new. But technology doesn't refer only to brand-new machines and discoveries. Each book in the Ancient Technology series provides a fascinating look at a particular area of technology as it developed in ancient times, from the first humans to the fall of the Western Roman Empire in A.D. 476. Each chapter covers a different ancient civilization, beginning with Stone Age cultures and progressing chronologically through others, such as the ancient Middle East, Egypt, China, Mesoamerica, Greece, Rome, and India; and each book includes a world map and timeline to show the location and time span of each culture.

Agriculture had changed human life more than any other form of technology. This early history of agriculture looks at the tools and methods used to raise Animals and grow crops, how agriculture led to civilizations, and how ancient people kept experimenting to find new ways to farm, preserve food, and more.
