*SOLD OUT* Night of 100 Objects Other events...
A public lecture by Dr Jeremy Hill, Head of Research, The British Museum.

Following the internationally successful British Museum & BBC Radio 4ís History of the World in 100 Objects, JD Hill offers a rare behind the scenes look at the making of this series. JD led the team who helped Neil MacGregor write this landmark BBC Radio 4 history. As well as looking at how the project grew, he will explore the challenges of writing history aimed at a very wide audience, and how telling this through objects is both harder and easier than writing more conventional history.

J D Hill PhD, MPhil, BA, FSA is Head of Research for The British Museum and is responsible for all the research at the Museum across a wide range of disciplines. From 2007 to 2010 he was the lead curator the British Museum/ BBC project A History of the World in 100 Objects. A visiting lecturer at the Centre for Maritime Archaeology at the University of Southampton, where he previously was based, he is also a member of the executive of the Nautical Archaeology Society. His own research has included studies of the archaeology of religion, social change and foodways in Iron Age and early Roman Britain. His current interests concentrate on interface between archaeology, world history and the sea.
