Brilliant illustrations, and easily understood facts. The timeline and clocks were very helpful. I appreciate that the dates are guesstimates but one can't possibly now the actual dates. I found this book woke my brain to some new questions I want answers to and THAT is why I read things like this. There wasn't an overload of information on any pages and the explanations were complex but not overly so. Again an excellent, I think adults can appreciate this book as well as children.
