    Take a 12,000-year walk through history with Steve Noon's award-winning A Street Through Time.

Children aged 7 and over will be fascinated as they watch the street change as buildings go up and come down; and they will also have the chance to learn about how people lived in years gone by.

    They can even search and locate the objects that have survived throughout the ages! A Street Through Time shows people at work, war and play and is sure to be returned to again and again as children (and adults!) spot new details every time.
