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.The ancient Egyptians were skilled in the crafts of painting, pottery, and carving. They knew how to weave cloth and how to work with precious stones to make beautiful jewelry. They built magnificent palaces and elaborate tombs for their rulers and decorated the walls of these structures with paintings of gods and goddesses. You can also create a snake game, fashion a clay pot, and prepare for a fabulous Egyptian feast
