The amazing stories behind our everyday foods - how they have changed the course of history, triggered wars, created black markets, kickstarted whole industries and revolutionised our diets

Did you know that the little white grains that sit in your salt cellar have an amazing story to tell?

The simple condiment has caused wars to break out, empires to be conquered and black markets to flourish. This book describes the journey salt has taken, from prehistoric religious offerings to a staple seasoning.

Other topics covered are the health aspects of salt, how it is produced, its chemical properties and how it is traded around the world. This book is an ideal leisure read, but also perfect for course work and presentations.

This series, for children aged 9+, delves deep into the long and interesting histories of the foods that have shaped our world.
