Los Setenta Grandes Inventos Y Descubrimientos Del Mundo Antiguo/The Seventy Great Inventions Of The Ancient World


From the first crude stone tools used by man two-and-a-half million years ago up to the early medieval period, this eye-opening journey through human innovations draws on modern science and the latest research to explore some of history's most fascinating inventions. Beginning with the basic technologies of stone and fire, bone and wood, the survey moves on to answer such fundamental questions as How and where did agriculture evolve? and How did Romans and others heat and plumb their dwellings? This unique guide to some of humanity's most remarkable inventions is a testimony to the brilliant ingenuity and opportunism of human creativity.
