A History of the World in 100 Objects

Neil MacGregor continues examining humanity's history through objects at the British Museum, this week exploring the lives and methods of powerful rulers who lived around 2,000 years ago. He begins with the story of Alexander the Great, looking at a small silver coin that was made years after the leader's death but portrays an idealised image of him as a vigorous young man. With contributions by Andrew Marr and Robin Lane-Fox.
