Ancient Wonders - Then & Now introduces children to some of history's most famous civilisations and the amazing palaces, temples and buildings they created. In this interactive and fact-filled tour, kids will discover all about each man-made marvel, what it looks like today, and its influence on modern life. Then, by opening the gatefolds and lifting flaps, they'll find out how these wonders were built, what they once looked like, and their role in ancient society.
