Historium is the museum that never closes! This glorious book is home to an astonishing 130 artefacts from ancient civilisations, all of which you can peruse and marvel at from the comfort of your sofa.
For children harbouring a desire for archeology, who are fascinated by history and are eager to explore, then Historium is nothing less than a treasure trove of discovery.
Richard Wilson and Jo Nelson have done an amazing job of curating 1,000,000 years of history, cleverly introducing children to repeating themes across civilisations, and turning them in to historical detectives. You'll bristle with pride as children observe similarities and differences across cultures. This is a journey around the world and through time, and it is exquisite.
Wonderful illustrations and the size of the book itself (just shy of A3) means that the weight of information isn't overwhelming, and children as young as 7 or 8 will access it with gusto.
Historium is a clever, unique and compelling guide for future archaeologists and historians.
