A History of the World in 100 Sheds

I'm fascinated by the short 15 minutes audio profiles of one hundred objects through which the British Museum's Neil MacGregor is telling the history of the world on BBC Radio 4 UK. 

It got me thinking. You could tell the history of the world through one hundred of all kinds of things - bicycles, brooms or street corners to name a few.

But as this is Shedworld, I'd like your help to tell the history of the world in 100 sheds.

From Lao Tzu to Gillis Lundgren, the Abbé Marc-Antoine Laugier to the Unabomber, from the baby Jesus to Frank Whittle, let's have your suggestions for the sheds that have really had an impression on world history. There'll be a prize for the Top Ten entries. So start submitting your ideas now. Send a short description of why the shed was so significant and a picture if you can.


  1. Great resources ! Thanks for the information and additional resources.

  2. In my garden there is a large place for feeling. My garden of plants is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The opinions grow as freely as the flowers, and the thoughts are as beautiful.


Thanks for visiting Shedworld.
