A History of the World is all about participation. The site will create a digital collection of objects that tell a history of our world from communities across the UK. Adding your object to the site, and telling its story, will ensure that these stories of how we and our ancestors have been part of history will be remembered.
Museums across the UK are contributing objects from their collections that tell 'a history of the world'. Over 350 museums have added objects to the site, and we'd like more museums, collections, societies and oganisations to be represented in this growing digital museum. If you're adding objects on behalf of a museum, please contact us so we can give you museum status on the site.
