Spot the Mistake: Lands of Long Ago

Publisher: Wide Eyed Editions

Review

Do you think you could spot the wrong type of shoes worn by a Roman Centurion, or the wrong kind of helmet worn by a Viking? What about spotting a spray paint can at a medieval joust? In this high-quality large hardback, keen-eyed readers can look for anachronisms in detailed and colourful illustrations that chronicle a number of historical periods. Fortunately, all the answers are included after every era.

Particularly suitable for older primary children, this unusual seek-and-find book also includes lots of facts about cultures such as the Stone Age, ancient Rome, Greece and Eqypt, medieval England, Mayan-ruled Mexico and 17th and 18th-century European pirates. It's an unusual concept that will be popular with schools and history fans, as well as kids who want to dip in and out of a book for fun.
