A History of the World in objects

leave a comment »

A History of the World in 100 Objects‘ is a site created by the BBC in conjunction with the British Museum that uses pictures of objects from the Museum to illuminate the story of humankind.

The format of the site takes you through history by drawing the images towards you. On the right hand side is a timeline, with a slider to take you to a specific period of time. There are also up and down arrows to click at the bottom centre of the screen to navigate through the time periods.

Clicking on any of these images highlights that object in a window. You can then click for additional information.

Down the left hand site you can use the categories to identify objects. The categories are:

  • Location
  • Theme

  • Culture
  • Size
  • Colour
  • Material

You can also use the Basic Explorer view to investiage the site.
