Director of the British Museum Neil MacGregor takes us on a journey through two million years of human history. He's managed to pick just 100 objects to help explain the history of the world. They're presented in a new book based on his popular BBC series, A History of the World in 100 objects. Madeleine talked to MacGregor about the objects he chose.
