Through Time London (Through Time)

Through Time London (Through Time) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From a Neolithic camp to the host of the 2012 Summer Olympics, very few cities have seen as much history, innovation, and bloodshed as London. In Through Time: London - by Richard Platt, illustrated by Manuela Cappon - readers take an historical, geographical, and anthropological journey through Londons past through amazing artwork and detailed cross sections. From the earliest habitations to the Roman and Viking invasions, the Plague, Shakespeare, The Great Fire, right up to the Industrial Revolution, the Blitz, and more, readers will uncover layer after layer of Londons magnificent history and learn about the people who have called the city home.

Review:

"Third in the Through Time series, this detailed full-color book explores the history of London from 'Neolithic camp' to the modern city it is today. Significant events throughout the centuries are covered on double-page spreads: 'Plague! — A.D. 1348' headlines a disease-ridden city, where diminutive figures bury their dead and captions label landmarks ('houses are tightly packed together, so the infection spreads quickly'). The year 1666 marks the Great Fire, which is pictured blazing through the thatched roofs as residents scatter. Pages devoted to modern London highlight the technological advances made throughout its history: 'rising property prices have driven factories out of London's center,' and 'glass skyscrapers... have transformed London's skyline.' Cutaway views of various structures and concise but engaging text effectively capture the changing face of a city over time. Ages 6 — 10. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
