Grade Level:
6 - 12
Explosive, powerful, and deadly, gunpowder transformed the face of war and led to the destruction of once-invincible empires. Witness the first use of firepower in Europe in 1346, when England's stone-hurling cannons did little more than frighten the enemy's horses. Follow the developing technology as cannonballs brought down the walls of Constantinople, handguns became increasingly efficient, and Europeans' firearms annihilated ancient civilizations en route to world domination. Consider one powerful society--Japan--where guns were outlawed in favor of the traditional sword.

Only available in the US.
