A History of the World in 100 Objects

 
This was a collaboration between the British Museum and the BBC Radio 4. One hundred objects from the museum's collection were chosen to tell human world history from the first tool users to the present. This is not the only hisotry that could be told with objects, but it is a fascinating exercise and presents an excellent model of how objects can be used as an entry point into history. Here are two ways to access the material:
 
THE WEBSITE: At the website related to the program, users can explore high quality images of the objects and listen to the broadcast.
 
THE BOOK: The text of the broadcasts along with images of the objects.
