The history of the world from the Stone Age to the Digital Age

Does your child think history is just about boring dates and long-dead kings and queens? Give them Take Me Back and they'll discover 200,000 years, 106,456,367,669 people, 5,000 languages, 100 million books, 10,000 religions, 119 great empires, seven ancient wonders, two world wars, one Elvis and zero boring stuff.

From history's craziest hairstyles to a full-blooded fantasy face-off between the Vikings and the Romans, this is all the good bits, the really amazing bits, the gory, exciting, bizarre and jaw-droppingly incredible bits of history, as your child has never read, seen, heard or experienced it before.
