Like an archaeological dig, Clothes & Crafts in History offers readers an opportunity to uncover exciting details of past lives in ancient cities and times. From descriptions and physical evidence left behind, readers learn about the variety of materials and skills that craft workers used to produce kitchen utensils, clothes, jewelry, and other items. Each book in the series also includes information on festivals of the time and exciting project ideas that will help young readers identify with peoples and cultures of the past.The ancient Greeks were proud, powerful people whose ideas, crafts, and arts inspired the rest of the world. They crafted beautiful pottery, metalwork, and textiles, some of which still exists in museums today. They were highly skilled architects, carvers, and weavers, and they decorated the walls of their massive temples and citadels with fine paintings. You can also make a painting for a palace wall, create a soldier's shield, and prepare the entertainment for an exciting Greek dinner party
