Daily Prompt: Being Historic!

Daily Prompt: 500 years from now, an archaeologist accidentally stumbles on the ruins of your home, long buried underground. What will she learn about early-21st-century humans by going through (what remains of) your stuff?

Probably that our technology was only just developing – I mean, in five hundred years time we’ll be riding around on hover-boards, right? My dearly loved Kindle would look like a brick! And the fashion would probably look a lot different; if she went through my sister’s wardrobe she could find all sorts of mysterious items, like a ‘Manic Street Preachers’ T-Shirt – maybe that would give the archaeologist an idea of what people were fans of ‘back in the day’? Unfortunately we’re not hoarders or passionate collectors so we’re probably not the most interesting house for an archaeologist to dig up!
