MATHEW TRINCA: I say this really honestly when I say A History of the World in 100 Objects is an exhibition like no other. Its story is really our story — the story of us — and it represents human experience over a vast swathe? of two million years.

BELINDA CRERAR: What really makes this exhibition unique is that it is a history told directly through objects and this for me is really special. What I find really fascinating about this exhibition is it’s through the objects themselves that we can access the concerns and the thoughts of societies who made them; the people who created them.
