Fascinating stuff!

Great selection of historical artifacts that are each explained with context by experts in the relevant field. Excellent production and learning tool.

Learn, be amazing at parties

LOVED this. It's one of my all time favourites, All 100 episodes make for a marvelous journey. Learned soooooo much about so many things. Way beyond the historical event. My #1 reccomennded podcast. Note: Listen in order if you can. Don't worry if you can’t. Makes a great break when you are listening to lots of casts on trips and stuff. Mix 'em up.

Outstanding

Although I often visit and enjoy museums, this series takes one’s appreciation of an item to a whole new level. I hope to visit the British Museum and see many of the subjects of the episodes, while listening to the relevant podcast.
