Review:

In the Beginning History series, text level and content correspond with the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority's key stage 1 units, and the spreads have large, dispersed text and bold captions. The books approach history using pictorial, photographic, archaeological and even some written evidence. ( TES Teacher)

...help budding historians get a genuine feel for a particular era. ( BBC History, January 2003)

This excellent...book tells the story simply but without condescension and explains some of the causes and after effects. It is well illustrated with photographs, drawings and contemporary engravings. The quotations from people living at the time are well chosen and bring the books to life...splendid value. ( Carousel Magazine)
