History of the World in 1000 Objects takes a fresh look at world history, viewing cultures and early civilizations through the objects that they created.

Each culture’s objects are grouped under key themes, from art to the history of technology and together build a story that gives real insight into civilization, plus the accessible visual approach to history makes it easy to compare how people lived at different times and in different parts of the world. The objects, from swords and spears to astrolabes and maritime atlases, are showcased through stunning photography from around the world.
