Explore the development of civilisation not just from Britain but from every corner of the globe with objects and artefacts going back nearly 2 million years. Join me on a journey crossing oceans like the Atlantic to get to Central America, or the South Pacific to find a remote island known locally as Rapa Nui, and discover extinct ancient civilisations of Egypt and Greece as well as looking at treasures found here in Britain.

Top sites: Rosetta Stone, Parthenon Marbles and Egyptian mummies
