Ancient Worlds Inside Out presents primary-source artefacts as small pieces of information that, gathered together, offer a greater understanding of an ancient civilization as a whole. Each book features artefacts of a particular civilization, which readers are encouraged to evaluate as evidence of cultural practices, ways of life, and the achievements of the civilization. Questions help prompt discussion and a final activity encourages readers to act as historians and draw out information themselves from an ancient artefact (sourced from Crabtree). A detailed index, glossary and list of related websites support inquiry.
