Recommend this event

An introductory talk by Jill Cook, curator of the exhibition that builds upon the BBC Radio 4 series Living with the gods: peoples, places and worlds beyond presented by former British Museum Director Neil MacGregor.

As human beings we think, we make things to ensure our survival and we symbolise our feelings, often reaching out to worlds beyond our material existence. A walk around the Museum shows that all societies hold beliefs that bond them together and form their identities.

This talk and the exhibition focus on the how these beliefs are practised, their social significance and asks whether our species might better be called Homo religiosus rather than Homo sapiens.

Includes a complimentary drink.
