A new series in Crabtree Publishing’s unique Inside Out imprint, Ancient Worlds Inside Out presents primary-source artifacts as small pieces of information that, gathered together, offer a greater understanding of an ancient civilization as a whole. Each book features artifacts of a particular civilization, which readers are encouraged to evaluate as evidence of cultural practices, ways of life, and the achievements of the civilization. Questions help prompt discussion and a final activity encourages readers to act as historians and draw out information themselves from an ancient artifact.
