Easily obtained materials such as pillowcases, clay, styrofoam, and paper-towel tubes are used, and instructions are presented for making such things as Hittite shoes, a Nubian tomb, Egyptian sailboats, a Mesopotamian queen’s headdress, and an Assyrian feast. Other activities include doing math, Sumerian style; reading Egyptian hieroglphs, and playing games that illustrate travel of the times.
