A golden galleon, a stone age tool, a credit card . . . every object tells a story. This 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. ‘This wonderful book transports us to every corner of the globe.’ Tom Holland, Observer ‘Magnificent . . . He brings home to our hearth the long-dead ancestors, the distant races, the heroes and brutes and dreamers of the rolling centuries . . . there is poetry in their survival and their evocation.’ Libby Purves, The Times ‘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 ’Authentic, personal and humorous.’ Andrew Roberts, Financial Times ‘Highly intelligent, delightfully written and utterly absorbing.’ Timothy Clifford, Spectator
