Be taken on a voyage through the British Museum’s collections to explore the last two million years of human history.

Each object featured in A History of the World in 100 Objects marks a point on your journey through history: from early stone tools to Dürer’s celebrated print The Rhinoceros; the famous Flood Tablet to colourful Javanese shadow puppets.

Unlock fascinating stories and discover interactions between cultures of the past. Wonder at the remarkable achievements of humans as they faced changing climates, new lands and changing political arenas, and be amazed by their ingenuity and awed by their craftsmanship.
