A History of the World – the BBC

I’m probably the last person to learn about this, but just in case I’m not… I recently discovered a BBC podcast about the History of the World  in 100 Objects. These short, less-than-15-minute recordings each focus on one object from the British National Museum and are absolutely fascinating. Well worth listening to.

You can download individual podcasts, subscribe via many services, or just listen to the recordings here.

This is the BBC’s History of the World home page.

And if you’re a bit obsessive like me, here is a list of the 100 objects.
