Like an archaeological dig, Clothes & Crafts in History offers readers an opportunity to uncover exciting details of past lives in ancient cities and times. From descriptions and physical evidence left behind, readers learn about the variety of materials and skills that craft workers used to produce kitchen utensils, clothes, jewelry, and other items. Each book in the series also includes information on festivals of the time and exciting project ideas that will help young readers identify with peoples and cultures of the past.By 100 A.D., the Romans ruled a mighty empire. Roman craft workers produced beautiful works of art including, jewelry, woodwork, metalwork, and pottery. The people decorated their walls, floors, and ceilings with pictures made from chips of colored glass, called mosaics. They also wove textiles for clothing, wall hangings, and sailcloth. Tunics and togas were the main items of clothing, held together by brooches or jewelry. You can also make a dolphin brooch, design a mosaic, and create an actor's mask.
