I have been musing on something and would like some input…
The British Museum and the BBC have just started a year long project called
A history of the world in 100 objects
Aptly named, it aims to explore human history from 2 million BC onwards as illustrated by 100 objects from the collections of the British Museum.
Here's the thing, currently they have only 99 objects. During the course of the year they will choose 1 more object, one which they feel represents the world in 2010.
My question is this: What would you choose and why?
