How to see the World — and now, New York – through a collection of objects

First the BBC produced A History of the World. Now it looks like New York is following suit with A History of New York in 50 Objects.

Here’s hoping that other places follow through. (Hey, CBC, can you get on that? :))

It is a fascinating way to study history. I have the book that accompanies the BBC series and it is very good.
