This is an erudite and thought provoking book, companion to the equally excellent radio series. I must confess to being a big fan of latter through podcasts that I listen to regularly, and multiple times. The BBC and the British Museum can be justly proud of this innovative series. The breadth and scope have to be experienced to be believed. Neil MacGregor does full justice to the task, both in terms of avoiding simplistic arrogance, and in providing academic depth, even in the short episodic format.

A great accompaniment to the excellent BBC radio series by the same name. Great to see the pictures me the items. Highly recommended,
