The current special exhibition at the British Museum, Living With Gods: people, places and worlds beyond, broaches this phenomenon through an exploration of the practice and expression of human beliefs.
Expect to see a wide range of media drawn from different cultures and different centuries. Highlights include pieces from the ice age 40,000 years ago to a remarkable 18th-century replica of a Hindu ceremonial chariot.
For this autumn exhibition, The British Museum has adopted an innovative approach to the design and special effects. To intensify the visual experience, the exhibition will project the sounds, music and silence associated with the religious practices presented.
If Scythians: warriors of ancient Siberia is anything to go by, we are in for a treat!
This exhibition is accompanied by a BBC Radio 4 series, which will be broadcast from 23 October 2017, and Living with the Gods, written by Neil MacGregor.
