Tell your History of the World

A History of the World BBC
Your objects can help tell A History of the World

A brand new collaboration between the BBC and the British Museum began on Monday 18th January.

The idea is to create a digital museum, and the project is called A History of the World.

As well as telling the stories behind 10 objects chosen from museum collections around the county, BBC Radio York will also be telling the stories behind your objects. We'd like you to get in touch and include the following information:

  • A brief description of your object and the story behind it and ideally attach a picture of it
  • Your contact details (name, phone number and email address)
  • Email us: northyorkshire@bbc.co.uk

York and North Yorkshire's 'top ten' objects

Museums in York and North Yorkshire have chosen objects from their collections to tell the history and story of North Yorkshire, for A History of the World.

Halifax Bomber, Yorkshire Air Museum
As long as it's man-made and tells a story any object can be included

They include an Egyptian mask of the god Anubis dating from around 500 BC, from the amazing collection of the Kent family from Harrogate, and the only complete Halifax bomber from World War II which is the result of a huge restoration project.

Find out about all 10 of York and North Yorkshire's objects here.

Your object must be man-made and should tell a story about history, people and places - something that could tell future generations about North Yorkshire and its connections with the rest of the world.

You can also submit your objects to the central History of the World website where they could become part of the digital museum.

Please tell BBC York & North Yorkshire about them too by emailing us.
