ReMaking History, Volume 1 Paperback / softback


William Gurstelle begins his remarkable journey through history with this volume, Early Makers.

Each chapter examines a remarkable individual or group of people from the past whose insights and inventions helped create the world we live in.

What sets this series apart from other history books - including other histories of technology - is that each chapter also includes step-by-step instructions for making your own version of the historical invention.

History comes to life in a way you have never experienced before when you follow the inventors' steps and recreate the groundbreaking devices of the past with your own hands.

In this volume you will discover: The Cave Dwellers of Lascaux and the Oil Lamp Pythagoras and the Tantalus Cup Heron and the Gin Pole Egypt's Bag Press Otto von Guerke and the Magdeburg Hemispheres Levi ben Gershon and the Jacob's Staff Juliana Berners and the Fishing Lure Archimedes and the Water Screw China's Differential Windlass Be sure to also check out ReMaking History, Volume 2: Industrial Revolutionaries and ReMaking History Volume 3:Makers of the Modern World.
