The How Art Made The World storytelling interactive is a fun chance to learn more about how storytelling evolved through the ages, and why some people call Trajan's Column in Rome a "movie epic frozen in stone."

The interactive will also give you the opportunity to create your own ancient Hollywood movie trailer cut from stone.

"When a story enchants us, we lose the sense of where we are; we are drawn into the story so thoroughly that we forget it is a story being told. This is, in Aristotle's phrase, "the suspension of disbelief."
