In Search of Troy (In Search of Series) ePub download

This series is a collaboration between Gian Paolo Cesarani and the gifted illustrator, Piero Ventura.

The first section is part biography and the story of early archaeology. The last part of the book touches on the Trojan War. It is a decent introduction and I hope to better introduce her to the work when she is a little older. This series is a collaboration between Gian Paolo Cesarani and the gifted illustrator, Piero Ventura. The four books are wonderfully written and are a great introduction to both the ancient world and the study of archaeology.

It examines the extent to which historical and archeological evidence matches the tale of the Trojan War as recounted by Homer in The Iliad.

Grade 4-9 The romance and excitement of archaeology come alive in three exceptional books about Crete, Troy and Tutankhamun. Evans, Schliemann and Carter, who discovered these sites, employed legends, skill and serendipity to make their priceless finds. Readers can relive the initial disappointments and eventual thrilling discoveries of these pioneer archaeologists. The development of archaeology as a science and the information the artifacts themselves give about ancient civilizations are discussed.

The Iliad is one of the foundational texts of Western Literature and I think it is important to introduce the book to children at an early age. Unfortunatley, my seven year old daughter does not have the patience to listen to a children's version of the Iliad. "In Search of Troy" is an alternative way to introduce her to the story. This children's book focuses on Heinrich Schliemann's search for Homer's Troy. The first section is part biography and the story of early archaeology. The last part of the book touches on the Trojan War. It is a decent introduction and I hope to better introduce her to the work when she is a little older.

"In Search of Troy" is part of the "In Search of Series". There are additional books on the discovery of Myceanae, Tutankhamun's Tomb and the buried city of Pompeii. This series is a collaboration between Gian Paolo Cesarani and the gifted illustrator, Piero Ventura. The four books are wonderfully written and are a great introduction to both the ancient world and the study of archaeology. Unfortunately, these books are long out of print and you will have to buy them used. In the last year, I have become a huge fan of the work of Piero Ventura and have purchased all of his available books. His beautifully illustrated books are a great way to expose young children to world history.
