Ancient Agriculture: From Foraging to Farming

Each chapter covers a different ancient civilization, beginning with Stone Age cultures and progressing chronologically through others, such as the ancient Middle East, Egypt, China, Mesoamerica, Greece, Rome, and India. Every book includes a world map and timeline to show the location and timespan of each culture. Supports the national curriculum standards Culture; Time, Continuity, and Change; People, Places, and Environments; Science Technology and Society; and Global Connections as outlined by the National Council for the Social Studies.
