Autumn 2016: Early Civilisations

What were the earliest civilisations like?  What evidence can we find about how people lived?  What impact are they still having on us today?

Looking back through time…….

We are looking back in history to find out about early civilisations.  We have used timelines to discover when these civilisations were at their height and world maps to find their locations.  We have looked at their writing systems and translated messages in the Phoenician alphabet!

Over the coming weeks we will be looking more closely at the Shang Dynasty, Ancient Sumer and the Indus Valley.  Use the links below to find out more about these fascinating civilisations.
