Summary
"This book is the only guide you will need to explore all the most important historical sites on the planet. From Stonehenge to the Great Wall of China, from Sterkfontein Caves - the 'cradle of humanity' in South Africa to Checkpoint Charlie, Germany and everywhere inbetween. The book explores all the sites that bear significance to us today. Places where Kings and Queens were crowned, wars were won and lost, people worship are all featured here, as well as sites that saw great advancements in structural engineering. Some will be familiar to all, others are less well-known but informed, entertaining text and stunning photography will ensure the reader has immense satisfaction at the discovery of each and every one."--Provided by publisher
