What You Leave Behind

Professor Peter Bleed and his students are sifting through all kinds of stuff found buried underground in the Haymarket, remnants from Lincoln’s early days. It’s amazing just how much stuff you can find if you dig in the right spot. It makes me wonder just how much tell-tale stuff I’ve left around. Not garbage taken to the dump—that’s too easy. I mean things I’ve dropped or left sitting around and forgotten. Who knows what curiosities I’ve left lying around!

Fortunately I can’t recall ever losing anything particularly valuable. Maybe a small toy or two, and a few pens and flipping coins on soccer fields. Have you ever lost anything odd or noteworthy that some future generation could find and dig up, only to be confused by what they’ve uncovered?
