The British Museum has selected 100 exhibits from its vast collections and displayed them in chronological order, allowing visitors to explore the life and experiences of the people in the past. These representative exhibits are from different eras and regions: from rare survival tools that our early human ancestors relied on to credit cards that are commonly owned by modern people nowadays. The exhibits are concentrated pieces of world history, recording the power of observation and creativity of human beings at different periods of human history.
In this lecture, the speaker from the British Museum will share with the audience the curatorial concept of the special exhibition "The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum".
