Finding History

Mats Vänehem, illustrated by Mats Vänehem

A non-fiction book fun for both kids and adults!

Come along on a journey of discovery in pictures, and learn some interesting facts into the bargain! “Finding History” is a fantastic, fascinating historical picture book that describes one particular place from the Ice Age to the present day.
Generous cross-section illustrations show clearly and vividly how the relics of different ages are hidden in the earth’s layers, while at the same time the place on the surface of the ground changes from one page to the next.
In this book, parents and children can find and create their own stories together, while at the same time learning about history. In the illustrations there are a thousand things for the observant reader to discover and follow through the different epochs up to our own time – it’s almost like being a real archaeologist! As an extra dimension there is a key object running through the book, something that has characterised this particular place throughout the ages and right up to the present day.

It is possible to read this book in many different ways. Facts about each age are presented clearly in a way that is both cool and easy to understand. Connections are made and details highlighted. An absorbing and fascinating book, which at the same time arouses the curiosity of the reader with regard to history. Experience, discover and research it in “Finding History”.
