A History of the World in 100 Objects - The World in the Age of Confucius (500 - 300 BC) - Basse Yutz Flagons


Neil MacGregor's history of the world recounted through objects at the British Museum arrives in Northern Europe 2,500 years ago. Neil explores the early world of the Celts through two bronze drinking flagons, considered to be the most important and earliest examples of Celtic art. Writer Jonathan Meades and Barry Cunliffe, one of the world's leading experts on this period, help describe the Celts, dissect the stereotypes and consider their celebrated love of drink.
