Using important events, stories, myths and objects to bring ancient civilisations to life.
The Shang were skilled builders, artists and craftsmen, and one of the best ways to discover how they lived is by studying the artefacts they made. Just as ancient objects enable us to step back into the world of the people who made them, the stories people told can reveal what they thought about their world. This book combines facts about the ancient Chinese with photographs of the artefacts they left behind and the stories they shared with each other to present a full picture of life at the time.
