    A golden galleon, a stone age tool, a credit card . . . every object tells a story. This astonishing, acclaimed history tells the story of the world, and our place in it, in an entirely new way, through 100 things we have either admired and preserved, or used, broken and thrown away. It will take you on a journey back in time and across the globe, to see how we humans have shaped our world, and been shaped by it, over the past two million years.

    'A marvellous book . . . brilliant, engagingly written, deeply researched'
    -Mary Beard, Guardian

    Brilliant, clever and original ... simultaneously captivates and liberates the imagination . . . The book is genuinely a world history, traversing the globe from remote Scottish Isles to the deserts of aboriginal Australia, and reducing 'our times' to their proper place'
    - John Adamson, Sunday Telegraph
