Read the sentences and translate. Please pay attention to the sentence structures.
1. Its blockbuster (轰动的) exhibition, “A History of the World in 100 Objects”, featuring rare and ancient items from across the planet, will come to China for the very first time. 
•“A History of the World in 100 Objects”是exhibition的同位语, featuring rare…部分是现在分词短语作后置定语。
•feature: show a particular person or thing in a film, magazine, show, etc.
•(大英博物馆)引起轰动的展览将首次在中国展出。这次展览名为“100件藏品中的世界史”,将展出来自全世界罕见和古老的物品。
 
2. With this in mind, how did it choose these 100 items to represent our planet’s history?
• with this in mind是with+宾语+宾补的独立主格结构,此处宾补是介词短语。
•有这么多藏品,博物馆是怎么选出了这100件藏品来代表世界历史呢?

3.  “These signals from the past speak of whole societies rather than individual events, and tell of the world for which they were made, sometimes having meanings far beyond the intention of their original makers.”

V. Post-reading
Read the poem The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost and think about what it is about. 
 
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear …
 
One possible answer: life is full of possibility and change. We should not be afraid to make changes and we should be responsible  for our choices
