A History of the World in 100 Objects

Neil MacGregor

From a prehistoric stone axe to the embedded microtechnology in a modern credit card, each of Neil MacGregor's 100 objects carries messages about the society in which it was created and about how it has been perceived over time. Deciphering those messages, MacGregor has created a highly original, composite account of how humans have shaped the world and been shaped by it over the past two million years. This edition is exclusive to Postscript.
