Third in a series of major public exhibitions before the opening of Zayed National Museum, A History of the World in 100 Objects presented by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), in collaboration with the British Museum, exhibited 100 significant objects for 100 days, bringing contemporary audiences face to face with cultures across time and space.
The first time the popular radio series has been created as a physical exhibition, A History of the World in 100 Objects brought to life the material culture of the past, through a variety of objects such as a lifelike cast bronze hand from Yemen that was made between 100 and 300 CE, an Egyptian granite statue of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II discovered on Elephantine Island at the Temple of Khnum, and the famous Royal Game of Ur, found in a royal cemetery in southern Iraq and estimated to be around 4,500 years old.
