Have you ever wondered what a street was like hundreds of years ago? Through lively commentary and colorful illustrations that teach children about history, anthropology, and architecture, this book traces the development of a single street through the agesâ€”from a small camp of nomadic hunter-gatherers, to a settled village, then a town, then a bustling riverside thoroughfare in the heart of a metropolis. The text provides a fascinating and factual insight into the pictorial story, and also gives clues for finding hidden details. Readers can also search for the time traveler in each of the fourteen periods represented, as well as locate objects that have managed to survive the centuries.
