Director of the British Museum, Neil MacGregor, narrates 100 programmes that retell humanity's history through the objects we have made
102 episodes
A wonderful way to look at human history (and pre-history): by taking 100 objects from the museum and using them to benchmark the development of human society and culture. It's obviously well-researched and presented in a lovely style. It's all complete now, of course, but it's worth going back and listening to the entire series.
I will listen and relisten to this podcast many times before I die. Soothing, informative, just a joy
