About the book:

What was the Black Death? Who fought in the Hundred Years' War? What do people mean by the Counter-Reformation? With its simple chronological and thematic arrangement, The Concise Kingfisher History Encyclopedia puts the whole of history, and the legacy of human civilization - from the Ice Age to the Information Age - at the fingertips of today's children. Divided into ten clearly defined time periods (from 40,000 B.C.Ð to the present day), The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia covers every major empire, civilization, revolution, and war, as well as the technological and cultural advances that have left their mark on history. Three colorful spreads at the end of each section are devoted to the Art, Architecture, and Science and Technology of each major time period. A comprehensive index, and at-a-glance summaries of each period, make this a valuable resource for help with school assignments, as well as for casual browsing. Special Features: Bold headwords, and a concise definition of the subject appear at the top of the page. Text can be read section by section or as a complete article. Illustrated biographies and key date boxes provide essential information. Timeline throughout puts history in context and shows progression of world events.
