British Museum: the secrets of civilisations

Join us at the world’s greatest museum to learn the most important story there is, that of human civilisation. You will never see history the same way again.

Using the museum’s extraordinary collection of artefacts, we tell the story of civilisation and examine the ideas that brought us from simple hunter gatherers through to the modern age. We cover subjects ranging from the invention of agriculture and writing to how war, economics and religion have shaped our world. Along the way, we visit the British Museum's most famous exhibits, including ancient Egypt and Assyria, ancient Greece and Rome, the Vikings, Medieval Europe, the Aztecs and Easter Island, hearing tales of the archaeologists and treasure hunters who acquired the Museum’s collection.
