Is there an object in the Fitzwilliam's collection that has a special significance for you, or something that you think would help tell a 'history of the world'?
A History of the World is a unique partnership between the BBC, the British Museum and 350 museums around the country, including the Fitzwilliam. These participating museums are selecting man-made objects from their collections that tell a story not only about the region, but also of its place in the world.
The Fitzwilliam has selected three objects from its collection, but is now calling on the public to add their own choice of objects from the Museum's collection to the BBC A History of the World site, too. If there's a particular object you think should be included, visit the Fitzwilliam's History of the World pages where you can learn how to upload an object or get inspiration from our image gallery. Remember, if you also have a personal connection with an object in the Fitzwilliam, you can visit our Hidden Histories: Names and Faces mini-site and tell us your story.
