A History of the World in 100 Objects Audio Book CD
'Mr. MacGregor’s choice of objects is always interesting…and his treatment is lively.' The Wall Street Journal
'bold, fluent and sharply intelligent' The Guardian
In 2010, the BBC and the British Museum produced a radio series to tell the story of two million years of human history using one hundred objects selected from the Museum's collection. Presented by the British Museum's former Director Neil MacGregor, each episode focuses on a single object - from a Stone Age tool to a solar-powered lamp - and explains its significance in human history.
On each CD, objects from a similar period of history are grouped together to explore a common theme and make connections across the world. This box set also includes an illustrated booklet with additional background information and photographs, and each CD includes PDF images of the featured objects.
