Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Starting with an Olduvai Gorge chopping tool and ending with a credit card and a solar-powered lamp, 100 objects put readers in touch with the long sweep of human history.
Full-page photographs (color and black-and-white) make the objects easy to visualize, and MacGregor, director of the British Museum, presents brief articles that place them in historical context. "A visual history of humanity…filled with fascinating objects. Beautiful and absorbing," says the New York Times.
