The British Museum's highly-acclaimed exhibition, A History of the World in 100 Objects, has attracted numerous visitors since it opened at the National Museum of China in Beijing on March 1, 2017.
The exhibition narrates the development and diversities of global history through a selection of artifacts, artworks and other objects from the British Museum's encyclopedia collection.
It originally evolved from a broadcasting series which the London museum started in partnership with the BBC in 2010. The series included a 15-minute program introducing each one of 100 objects from the museum's collection that revealed the communication methods of various human cultures over the course of two million years.
