Sinopsis

William Gurstelle begins his remarkable journey through history with this volume, Early Makers. Each chapter examines a remarkable individual or group of people from the past whose insights and inventions helped create the world we live in. What sets this series apart from other history books - including other histories of technology - is that each chapter also includes step-by-step instructions for making your own version of the historical invention. History comes to life in a way you have never experienced before when you follow the inventors´ steps and recreate the groundbreaking devices of the past with your own hands.

In this volume you will discover:

The Cave Dwellers of Lascaux and the Oil Lamp

Heron and the Gin Pole
Egypt´s Bag Press
Otto von Guerke and the Magdeburg Hemispheres
Levi ben Gershon and the Jacob´s Staff
