About the book

Journey around the globe and explore 12,000 years of human history from ancient times to the present day.

From the hunter-gatherers and pyramid-builders of ancient times, to the space travellers and tech experts of today, the Kingfisher World History Atlas shows the who, what, when, where and why of the major events of human history.

Delve deep into the world of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome; marvel at the buildings, empires, conquerors and cultures of medieval times; follow explorers and empire-builders from the Renaissance to the French Revolution; and examine the endlessly changing world of the modern age.

Simon Adams' fascinating text, plus more than 65 beautifully illustrated and detailed maps as well as timelines, photographs and illustrations, make this an authoritative and accessible guide to the people, places and events that have shaped our world.
