Peter Kent's brilliant cross-sections show how an early settlement changes into a bustling, modern-day city. Kent offers a quick tour of modern civilization as seen through the archaeological lens of an imagined European city in this detail-rich picture book.

Peter Kent's brilliant cross-sections show how an early settlement changes into a bustling, modern-day city. Beginning in the Stone Age, each spread uses the same vantage point to show a cutaway snapshot of what the landscape and city would look like in each era. Structures get built up, then fall into layers of debris as the time frame moves forward and the base level of the city creeps steadily upward. City Across Time depicts a location from the Stone Age and re-draws it throughout history as both technology and culture advances. The detail of the artwork is excellent, recreating history as well as adding a multitide of details. It's this detail that will offer longevity to the book where children will be seeing new details with every reading.

Peter Kent’s brilliant cross-sections show how an early settlement changes into a bustling, modern-day city. The lively, warm and friendly illustrations are packed with absorbing and eye-opening details, and clearly show how new buildings are constructed on the rubble of the old. Eagle-eyed readers will have hours of fun spotting the descendants of one particular family though the centuries, and seeing how once-grand buildings become buried and how some structures remain through the centuries.

This is an excellent book for introducing children to history, archeology, architecture, and so many subjects. Fantastic illustrations. We've spent many hours looking through this book with our children, talking about different periods of history, how people lived, how we live now.... You can use this book to introduce and discuss so many different concepts. The illustrations are so detailed and clear -- they provoke conversation and make all of this so much more memorable than it would be with just a straight textbook.

Take a crash course in history and explore the development of cities from the beginning of the Stone Age through the modern period and into the far-off future. Added into the mix are a number of important lessons in economics, including the invention of money during the Iron Age to help facilitate trade, the importance of markets and stores already in the Middle Ages for buying and selling goods, the introduction of piped water and sewage systems to keep people healthier and cities cleaner, and innovations in public transportation to reduce congestion.

With a detailed description of archeological tools and methods, as well as intricate illustrations of city life and structures, this fascinating book helps children to understand how cities evolved and how the well-being of city inhabitants improved over time.

This is an interesting book with great illustrations that show a changes over time. From ancient hunters fording a stream, to ancient planters who bridged the stream and built their dwellings, to ancient villagers, ancient Romans, medieval villagers, and city builders again.

Each time period leaves behind its distinctive layers of debris, from refuse pits to plague corpses to foundations and footings to mammoth bones. Very cool.

Then we get into speculation about how war or climate change will destroy the city so completely that it will take 10,000 for civilization to arise again... that's a depressing way to end the book.

I recommend these other amazing books about city building:

David Macalauay's City City: A Story of Roman Planning and Construction
