Step aboard a 16th Century galleon and discover for yourself what it was like to live and work on one of these magnificent ships. A 16th Century Galleon details the people involved and the tools used in the ship's construction and on its maiden voyage and beyond, including information about weaponry, navigation, crew and trade. Take a closer look at history with Spectacular Visual Guides, a series that scratches way past the surface of history, examining the legacies of long lost civilisations. Each title provides the reader with a detailed glimpse of people and places during pivotal periods in time. Astounding architectural acheivements are explained and explored with full-colour cutaway illustrations. Pinpoint enlargements focus on the day to day lives of the people, looking at how they ate, dressed, entertained themselves and sometimes fought. Illustrations of artifacts and paintings from the era help to support the main text by providing proof which explains how we know what we know. Informative captions, maps, a complete glossary and an index make these titles ideal educational texts. Each one features a sturdy flexi-bound cover with gold foiling.
