If someone were to study our lives 150 years from now, they would have pictures to help tell the story. However, objects and documents would still be useful. A soccer ball would tell future historians that we liked sports and they were important parts of our lives. The number of books in our house would reveal that we enjoy learning. Our energy efficient light bulbs and our hybrid car and recycling bins would show that we are concerned about protecting the environment.
Will the objects and documents in your house tell historians what you want them to know?
