    This is a book I ve been reading for a year at least I think I got it for Christmas 2013 It s divided into 100 sections so it s ideal for dipping in to It starts with objects of great antiquity from pre history and moves forward, ending up with an object from 2010 There are black and white pictures of each object and periodically a bunch of colou

    I always have a kitchen book, it sits there waiting for me to have to do something or other that requires little concentration and then I read a bit So while my immersion blender is immersed, on the whisk is automatically frothing, or I am just absent mindedly munching away and pretending I m not eating view spoiler because it s always fattening f

    When Neil MacGregor released A History of the World in 100 Objects as a podcast in 2010 it quickly became a favourite So when my awesome co blogger TS sent me this book as a present I couldn t wait to rediscover some of the British Museum s amazing artefacts alongside my co cloggers Reading with TS and Celeste was fascinating, each person s knowledge b

    A History of the World in 100 Objects was such a unique, fun, informative way to kick of not just a new year but a new decade Unfortunately 2020 has proven itself to be a dumpster fire in almost every way, but I m incredibly grateful for my co bloggers, who are not only lovely people but my very best friends We talk every single day, and even though I

    I used to dislike history lessons in school, and I could not reconcile that with my love and curiosity for ancient civilisations like Egypt, Greece and Rome Now I know that the problem was with the dispassionate method of teaching employed at school I stumbled upon The Great Courses on Audible a few years back, and fresh out of my Vikings obsession then
