Six thousand years ago, someone buried a beautifully designed Afro comb. It was uncovered 100 years ago but lay forgotten in an English museum. Until now. Secrets of the Afro comb traces 6,000 years of world history through a simple, everyday object, the Afro comb. From pre-dynastic ancient Egypt to the iconic 'Black Fist' comb of the 1970s, readers come to understand these objects as status symbols and religious objects as well as tools for grooming natural African hair. Written as the children's books to accompany the ground-breaking exhibition, Origins of the Afro Comb, at the Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge, Secrets of the Afro comb takes readers back in time, and across the world in an ideal introduction to world history from a broad perspective. Beautifully laid out throughout with 40+ full-colour illustrations and 49 photos, many never before published, to aid understanding. Written in a clear, engaging narrative with timelines, maps, index, and glossary to make this an invaluable reference guide. Includes activities to test knowledge. Ages 8+
