In History of the World in 1,000 Objects, discover how humans created their world from the objects they left behind. From the U.S. Constitution to the first iPhone, what has defined us is our talent for making things, from basic technology and everyday objects. With stunning, exclusive photography, this book highlights the objects our ancestors treasured, from the jewelry worn by the Mesopotamians to the prized ritual vessels used by the people of the Shang Dynasty, to give readers insight into what gave each culture its own identity.
