From the earliest times, people have worn clothes, not just for warmth, but to show their status or role in a group. Some wore special clothes for religious purposes, others dressed simply to look good and attract a partner. Clothes of the Ancient World looks at how fashions developed with the rise and fall of the early civilizations. Stunning, detailed artwork on every page recreates the clothes worn by men, women, and children in ancient times.
