The Ancient Engineers review

The Ancient Engineers - L. Sprague de Camp

I love this book! It demystifies ancient science in a way that is accessible, entertaining and without a bunch of hard math. Extra kudos for the cool history and biographical details about real people and events. This would be great to give someone who's fallen for the Ancient Aliens-type TV shows and books, and I'd totally give this to any kid who's interested in science.
