Over the centuries civilizations rise and fall. Before European explorers reached the shores of North and Central America, a great empire arose—the Aztecs. Leaving their original home in the north, the Aztecs came south, looking for the right place to build their dream city. They chose the most unlikely of places to settle—a snake-filled, barren island in the middle of a swamp. But with their energy, imagination, and determination, they not only built their city but conquered all those surrounding them to spread an empire more than 80,000 square miles (130,000 sq. km). Meet the Aztec gods, and learn what the Aztecs did to keep them happy. Discover what it’s like to walk in the footsteps of an Aztec warrior, a noblewoman, a priest, or a slave. Find out what they wore, what they ate—and who their enemies turned out to be.

When most people think of ancient Egypt, they think of the Pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx. These amazing structures were indeed built by the Egyptians, but they accomplished so much more!

They accomplished so many firsts—the first umbrellas, the first lighthouses, even the first zoos. Read to find out what other amazing things the Egyptians did.

Watch the Roman Senate as they scheme their way into power. Join the crowd in the Circus Maximus to watch the chariot races. In ancient Rome, families liked to go on vacation and lounge by the sea. They went to market, celebrated holidays, and even went out for dinner! Roman lives were like ours, but they were different in some ways too. Roman houses didn’t have bathrooms. Instead, everyone went to public baths, once every eight days. And when they partied, it went to extremes. They would eat so much that they would make themselves throw up! Travel back to ancient Rome to see what it was like to live in one of the largest-ever empires on Earth.

Fierce warriors, remarkable navigators, savvy businessmen avid board gamers, fashionable dressers—the Viking people were all these things during their golden age from AD 780 to 1100. Everyone feared the sight of a Viking longship coming in from the sea or down the river. But the Vikings weren’t just conquerors. They settled, traded, and grew wealthy. The adventurous Vikings had reached the shores of Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Britain, Ireland, and France. They did business with people as far away as Turkey. The Vikings liked to make money, but they liked to have fun too. They invented many board games and liked to tell stories. They gave each other names like Thorstein Cod-Biter, Ulf the Unwashed, and Einar Belly-Shaker. The Vikings certainly made their mark—some of the ways they made laws and the language they used are still part of society today.
