Description

Neil MacGregor guides us through the complex history, culture and identity of Germany by telling the stories behind 30 objects in his uniquely magical way. Beginning with the 15th-century invention of the Gutenberg press, he ventures beyond the usual sticking point of the Second World War to get to the heart of a nation that has given us Luther and Hitler, the Beetle and Brecht – and remade our world again and again. This is a view of Germany like no other.
