    A history of the world in 100 objects

    Has anybody else been listening this fabulous programme (BBC Radio UK)?

    It takes a single artefact each day and then explains how it came to be made; who it was made for and the role it played in the the history of the world.

    The artefacts are from all over the world.

    Yesterday's was the Shiva and Parvati sculpture (fascinating) but they have covered things as disparate as the Lewis Chessmen and the Clovis spearhead.

    They are available as podcasts (15 mins) and they have done about 70 to date.

    I cannot recommend them high enough.
    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    There is a terrific website we built which has pictures of all the objects which you can deep zoom to examine the objects in detail as well as read information. You can also explore 1000s of other objects from across the UK which tell global stories as add your own to the collection.

    The history of the world is fascinating ! I was in 10000 BC and I'm really delighted.
