Islam: An Object Lesson

The Islamic world has provided some of the greatest scientific, philosophical and artistic achievements in human history. The British Museum’s new book The Islamic World: A History in Objects tells the story of an intercontinental faith through textiles, ceramics, manuscripts and more. British Museum curator Venetia Porter talks about some of the most important pieces, and her own particular favourites, with Stuart Kelly.
