Having been out of school for several lifetimes, I found these Empires truly new and fascinating. You may not have every heard of some of these empires, either!I wish the print were a little larger because it would make a great gift to those of us who've been out of school and those of us who might need larger print.Great maps, illustrations, and timelines. Learn about known and (possibly) unknown civilizations!Large beautiful book.
