The Iron Age was the last great prehistoric age. Iron tools made life easier, yet the Iron Age was a time of constant war. Chapters cover how Greece went through a Dark Age, how new forms of government began, how architecture became more complex, new religions formed, and money was invented. Each chapter includes attention-grabbing photos and fascinating facts. Sidebars go deeper, and prompts invite readers to think for themselves. A Timeline of the Iron Age gives a big-picture view of the era.
