Revised and updated for a new generation, A Street Through Time is perfect for parents and children to look at together. The more you look, the more you'll see. Think of the street you live on. Now think of how it may have looked in 10,000 BCE, or in Roman times, or in Victorian England at the height of the Industrial Revolution. Steve Noon's A Street Through Time takes you on a time travelling journey that you won't forget. Beautiful double-page illustrations bring fourteen key periods in history to life. You will see magnificent buildings go up and come down, new churches built on the site of ancient temples, wooden bridges destroyed and then remade in stone, and statues demolished then unearthed many years later. In an added twist, you can search for the time traveller in each period and locate the objects that have managed to survive through the ages.
