The History of the World in a 100 Objects

Just heard programme 4 in this series (on Radio 4 - 9.45am).

The word fascinating truly applies as this morning it was about the Swimming Reindeer mammoth tusk carving which was found in a cave in central France. The presenter uses the ability and the desire to make art as the landmark indicator for the 'modern man' species.

It would be difficult to catch all of the programmes as I think they are dotted around the schedules - this morning's was a treat.

I think this is an excellent set of programmes and a great idea, the Clovis spear was excellent. I like the thought that each person can have their own idea of 100 objects that shape mankind and history. starrybob Posted by starrybob
