It's probable that the ancient people in Mesopotamia were the first to use the wheel for transportation around 3200 BC. If that's not impressive enough, the famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon were dreamed up and executed by this ancient culture. Sure to draw readers in, the main historical content covers the many cultures of ancient Mesopotamia and their technological advances in many areas, from shipbuilding to farming. Fascinating artistic renderings of ziggurats, Mesopotamian cities, and how arrowheads were made using clay molds enhance each section, along with up-close photographs of artifacts and ancient craftwork. A helpful timeline guides readers through the major historical events of the time while sidebars offer even more detail about each chapter.
