You go to a museum in 2009, and you can see the remains of past civilizations. The Minoans. Carthaginians. Romans. But as their time came to an end, so too will ours.
Where their remains tend to be coins, or fragments of pottery, ours will probably look a little different. A little something like this.
These "modern fossils" are by Christopher Locke, and if fake historical/archaeological/palaeontological relics are your thing (it's a bit of all three, really), they're available to purchase.
