Dr John Robb is an archaeologist and has been studying how people have understood the human body over the last 10,000 years.

"It may seem surprising to think the human body has a history. We take it for granted it's a material thing, it's just there"

Over time his research shows the body has been seen and portrayed in different ways: the body as an animal, the body politicised, God's body, the body as a machine and as a simultaneous mixture of the above.
