    By Moira Butterfield
    Authors:
    Moira Butterfield
    The lives of the ancient Britons were dramatically different from the lives we lead today. There were no large cities, no written languages and for much of the Iron Age there wasn't even any money. Yet the Iron Age Celts were nothing if not creative and skilled artists, farmers, warriors, traders and craftspeople. Incredible artefacts dug from fields, rivers and graves each tell us something about how they lived their lives, their beliefs and gods they worshipped, and how they fought and died. In Everyday Life, discover how tribes were organised and the roles of warriors, chieftains and druids. Find out what Celtic people actually looked like; the hill forts, brochs and roundhouses they lived in; Celtic names and clothes; gods and goddesses and why the technique of making iron tools and weapons had such an impact on their society.Discover the Celts and the Iron Age is a classic history topic series that takes a look at aspects of life in Iron Age Britain through the objects they left behind. Aimed at readers aged 7+ studying Key Stage 2 history.

    Authors:
    Cath Senker
    For thousands of years, humans and their actions have shaped our history. But some events are so profound, they not only change the course of history, they also manage to leave a legacy so powerful, it can be called world-changing. This book looks at 10 of these events - from the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus which brought about a radical change to the face of those continents, to the attacks of 9/11, which ushered in a new era of warfare and terrorism.Each of the 10 world-changing events is examined in detail - what were the circumstances; who was involved and why; what kind of a legacy has it left; and how is it still relevant to us today? Spanning a significant portion of human history, from the age of discovery in the 15th century, to both World Wars, the birth of modern science and the end of Apartheid, this book not only examines the events themselves, but also places them in the context of other historical events and developments. Perfect for course work and cross-curricular activities spanning history, politics and science; the book includes 10 further momentous events, as well as a timeline that places them in the context of world history.
