The final instalment of the ‘Wonderful World of Knowledge’ is now available – and we’ve saved possibly the best until last,

Over the past few months, The Falkirk Herald has been running its popular promotion to give every Falkirk Bairn a complete encyclopedia set featuring children’s favourite Disney characters.

Now, the last volume - ‘Famous Places’ - is available and we are convinced that the topics in this edition will have special significance for our youngsters.

Living in an historic town like Falkirk, local children may already have a good grasp of what makes a place famous.

The volume explains many aspects of what it takes, including locations that have World Heritage Site status.

Youngsters at Antonine Primary are no strangers to these kind of sites, with their school sitting in line with the famous Antonine Wall.

Pupils from the school are pictured getting stuck into the new volume in this fabulous encyclopedia set.

The World Heritage Committee inscribed the Antonine Wall as part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site in July 2008.

It is the fifth place in Scotland to be placed on the World Heritage List, and joins sites such as the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Statue of Liberty to have the honour.

The ‘Famous Places’ volume also includes fascinating facts about nationals parks, waterfalls and dams, ancient wonders and mountains.

Interested youngsters can also discover all about secret and mystical places, famous bridges, and holy places.
