Reprint. Originally published: as Step into the Chinese Empire. 1998.

An exploration of Ancient China, discussing the secrets of the world's oldest continuous civilization.

It examines Chinese culture and beliefs, from their ancient origins through to the abdication of the last emperor.

There are facts about Chinese people and why their tombs were filled with pottery figures, who the terracotta warriors were, what their importance was, and how silk was made.

A variety of practical projects seek to bring the past to life - such as flying your own dragon kite, making a model of a Han house and cooking a traditional Chinese recipe.

Illustrations include cross-sections, an historical map and a pictorial timeline.
