A History of the World in 100 Objects

An acclaimed history of the world through 100 things we have either admired and preserved, or used, broken and thrown away. This book will take you on a journey back in time to see how we humans have shaped our world, and been shaped by it, over the past two million years. From a golden galleon, to a credit card via the Rosetta Stone and a Ming banknote, this study is an amazing achievement.

As serialised on BBC Radio 4.
