Follow the evolution of a Stone Age riverside settlement into a twenty-first-century city

Have you ever wondered what a street might have looked like thousands of years ago? This illustrated history book for children takes you on a 12,000-year journey to find out the story of a single street.

Think of the street you live on. Now think of how it may have looked in the Stone Age in 10,000 BCE, or in Victorian times during the Industrial Revolution, or how it may look 50 years from now. Steve Noon’s A Street Through Time takes you on a time traveling journey that you won’t forget.

Beautiful double-page illustrations bring 15 key periods in time 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. You’ll find out how people lived long ago—the tools they used, what they wore, what they ate, and what they did all day. In addition, you can search for the time traveller in each period and locate the objects that have managed to survive through the ages. Revised and updated for a new generation, A Street Through Time now includes a look at the street 50 years in the future. It’s a perfect book for parents and children to look at together. The more you look, the more you’ll see.
