Daily Prompt – Digging up your Digs

It’s been a while since I did one of these! Today’s daily prompt is:

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?


What the archaeologist would find at the front of the house would much resemble what they would expect: technology. To the rear, where I am located, it would be similar to that found in the early 20th-century, the only difference would be the authors of the books and the printing and binging techniques of the books. This is what happens when a computer scientist lives with a Literature graduate and book enthusiast! Sorry Ms Archaeologist of the future, I ain’t making this easy for you!

But I can recommend literally anything from my bookcase, I’m just sad it got so damaged!
