Format: Hardcover
This 32-page book is an excellent illustrated introduction to the story of the ancient Chinese civilisation of the Shang Dynasty, aimed at young readers and schoolchildren, though suitable for interested adults. Every page is illustrated, many with surviving artefacts, along with modern illustrations and maps. The text-pieces are clear and easy to read, while being informative, and each illustration has a relevant caption. A Glossary and a Timeline are also provided.

The Shang dynasty flourished in China around 1600-1050 BC.

P08: An unusual queen

I bought this for my daughter to tie in with a school project. It is very informative with some good illustrations. My daughter very much enjoyed some of the interesting facts, and she was able to take it into school to share the information with the rest of the class. The facts are presented in a simple but informative way, and my daughter very much enjoyed reading it.
