A Question of History: Why were Mayan games so deadly? And other questions about the Maya

Take a look at the wackier side of history!

Did the Maya really invent hot chocolate? Why did they have pointed heads? And did the Maya civilisation really disappear?

With an engaging question and answer format, this series draws young readers into the fascinating, sometimes gruesome, world of famous peoples and civilisations through history. Each spread opens with a simple question, opening up an exploration of an aspect of the life of a people or civilisation and busting some popular myths along the way!.

The lively lay-out is supported by annotated photos and cartoons, making history fun and accessible for readers aged 9+.
