Description


Homo sapiens have remained the same species, largely unchanged in genetic makeup and anatomy since the Cro-Magnon era. By contrast, the cultural, social, and technological changes since then have been nothing less than extraordinary. Telling our story, from prehistory to the present day, DK's History is a thought-provoking journey, revealing the common threads and forces that have shaped human history.

Includes:

  • Inventions, discoveries, and ideas that have shaped world history
  • A look at human achievement through artifacts, painting, sculpture, and architecture
  • An examination of humankind in context as part of the natural world
  • Eyewitness accounts and biographies of key figures
  • A comprehensive timeline chronicling the key events of the countries of the world
