In 2010, the BBC and the British Museum embarked on an ambitious project: to tell the story of two million years of human history using one hundred objects selected from the Museum's vast and renowned collection. Presented by the British Museum's 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.
Read by Neil MacGregor.
