This book is fantastic for teaching ancient civilizations. There is one thing to consider: Otzi is shown without his private parts covered. You can't really see anything of course, but just consider the maturity level of your audience before ordering. After a full semester of having this book, my students still race to read it when they finish work (and yes, I monitor to be sure it's for educational purposes only..). Great detail & photographs. Worth every cent. I wish they would print posters!
