From the walled city of ancient Jericho to the modern-day metropolis of Tokyo, explore the world with this stunningly illustrated book of extraordinary city maps!
Co-authored by award-winning children’s authors Tracey Turner and Andrew Donkin in consultation with specialist curators at the British Museum, readers can visit cities from every inhabited continent on Earth.
Featuring vibrant, beautifully detailed artwork from Libby VanderPloeg, each carefully researched map takes readers on a city tour at a unique moment in time – from exploring Athens in ancient Greece during the birth of democracy to walking the beautiful lamplit streets of medieval Benin, deep in the West African rainforest.
Each map is followed by two gorgeously illustrated pages of fascinating information about what life was or is like for the inhabitants of each city. This is a captivating book packed with countless facts for curious readers to return to again and again.
