A history of the world in 100 objects

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

In preparing for their exhibition of 100 things you didn’t know about the city, the Designing Dublin 2.0 team learned how by uncovering and displaying some of its best kept secrets, a new picture of the city emerges.

Another project we’ve been aware of for a while now is the BBC’s A history of the world in 100 objects. The series, which is downloadable as 100 podcasts, consists of a collaboration between the BBC and the British Museum. Each episode, narrated by the director of the British Museum Neil MacGregor, helps to unfold a history of the world never seen before.
