PUBLIC LECTURE: *SOLD OUT* Night of 100 Objects
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.
