A History of the World in 100 Objects

Through my brother-in-law, artist Luis Jacob, I discovered an amazing program available online. It's called "A History of the World in 100 Objects", produced by the British Museum and the BBC. It showcases 100 different objects found in the British Museum collection, and uses them to tell a story of human culture.

Each segment is a morsel-sized 15-minute audio description, and features interactive views of each object described.

I'm hooked, and I thought you'd be interested to know about this.
Here's the first object, and you can get from there to the second object, etc....
