The British Museum will be telling the story of South Africa through its art.

They'll be some of the earliest examples of human creativity all the way through to cutting-edge contemporary works. Starting with rock art and early sculptures, it will continue through to the colonial art of the 17th-century and the highly-charged and political works that categorised the 20th-century, when artists responded to apartheid and segregation.

The exhibition will include a wide range of significant objects, including some of the world's oldest art pieces.
