This book ties in great works of art and architecture with history because a culture's art gives knowledge about what the society was like. The history of the color purple, cave art, Stonehenge, The Code of Hammurabi Stone, Egyptian art, glass, Christian art in the Catacombs, Vienna Genesis, Augusta Primaporta, and many great artists and works of historical art are included in this book. Makes a great supplement to Diana Waring's Ancient Civilizations and the Bible. Hands on fun projects follow each lesson. Bronze foil included for study of bronze age art project. Two history time lines are included. This book would be easy to incorporate into any history study, particularly the literature-based programs from Greenleaf Press, Beautiful Feet, Sonlight, or Hillside Academy.
