Ancient treasures: Objects of desire with Iain Shearer

Ancient treasures: Objects of desire with Iain Shearer

In this series archaeologist Iain Shearer will examine six different desires: Lust, Dignity, Power, Curiosity, Peace and War. Each lecture is illustrated by ancient treasures from across the world: the stories of the objects, the people who made them, covet them, and what they symbolised in the past – and why people still desire them today.
