Treasures of the World's Cultures brings together more than 250 objects in the British Museum collection. Drawn from all of the Museum's curatorial departments, these works come from every part of the world and from all ages. Collectively they form an overview of two million years of human culture and history.
An 800,000 year-old hand-axe is one of the most prized exhibits on display
