Last year the British Museum and BBC Radio partnered to present  A History of the World in 100 Objects.  Each of the objects was the subject of a podcast, and if you went to the British Museum in London, you could listen to the podcasts on premises and see each of the objects.

I happened to see one section of the display (released in increments) while visiting in February 2010, and was pleased.

Everything was grouped more or less by era or geography.

Now a gorgeous hardback book has been produced.  I lusted for it at B&N the other day but refrained from buying since it’s on my holiday wish list.

But I want a copy!

(Although I like the cover on the UK edition better than the US cover.)

    DH’s a world historian (HS teacher, but still!). Totally getting this for him for Christmas. Found it last week. 🙂 Looks like an amazing book.
