Builders of the Ancient World: Marvels of Engineering BY NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY, DONALD J. CRUMP (EDITOR) Hardcover: 199 pages Publisher: National Geographic Society (June, 2000) Language: English ISBN: 0870445855 LIST PRICE:12.00 From School Library Journal Grade 8 Up- Ancient constructions that stand out as exceptional examples of engineering technology and enduring beauty are described in this panoramic study. One chapter each is devoted to ancient Greece and Rome, MesoAmerica, South America, India and Southeast Asia, and China. Each chapter is written by an archaeologist or historian. Written as a mixture of first-person impressions and historical background, much of it is technical. The focus is on the many structures of a civilization, varying from temples to drainage systems, rather than lengthy descriptions of only a few edifices. HAS many glorious full-color photographs are a browsing treat for everyone. Comments: HB 1986 1st edition from Natl. Geo. Wear to DJ; book itself like new.
