Book Review


The Historium is an entire museum located in the pages of a book. The first few pages, or entrance to the museum, include a brief explanation of Archaeology and an invitation to learn from the past. The museum features six different galleries: Africa, America, Asia, Europe, The Middle East, and Oceania. Each gallery features a summary of each region, illustrations of artifacts found in those regions, and descriptions of each artifact. There is also a timeline of all the artifacts included in the museum to help visitors visualize what time period the different artifacts came from.
