What did we do before Twitter, cars, and laser surgery? Somehow early civilizations managed to get along just fine and even excel when it came to communication, transportation, and medicine. In honor of our new Twenty-First Century Books series, we are celebrating Technology in Ancient Cultures Week!
All week long we will be posting fascinating facts about early inventions and discoveries that have stood the test of time and made life easier for us today. Follow @LernerBooks on Twitter and look for our #ancienttech hashtag. Each time you retweet one of our #ancienttech posts, you will automatically be entered in a drawing to win a library bound set of our Technology in Ancient Cultures series! The series is brand new and perfect for students grades 6-12. The winner of the contest will be announced next Monday, March 14 right here on the blog.
