We are thrilled that the British Museum has included 2 Peruvian Objects in BBC Radio 4 series “History of the World in 100 objects”. This series is in our view, one of the best radio series and a ground breaking initiative by a Museum, to educate and enlighten the public.
The featured Paracas Textile appears in its Old World, New Powers (1100 – 300 BC) topic in the first series which was broadcast in February 2010. You can listen to it here! Or download the podcast.
We encourage you to listen to it and hope it will fuel your desire to travel the world, and come visit Peru. On the first series of this broadcast only 3 objects of the Americas were featured, 1 from Peru and 2 from Mexico.
Stay tuned for the second Peruvian object featured, coming soon!
