This is an ancient Roman doll made of colored ivory. It was found in the sarcophagus of an 8-year-old kid who lived about 1,800 years ago.
A child’s tunic with a hood that’s about 1,100 to 1,400 years old
Here’s a loaf of bread that’s partially preserved thanks to carbonization. This piece is more than 1,940 years old.

The bread was cooked in 79 CE in Herculaneum and was later buried under the ashes that appeared after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. In 1930, it was re-discovered from an archaeological site. As a result of this natural disaster, Roman cities such as Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae were covered with many feet of ash.

 

A real mask that belonged to a plague doctor in the seventeenth century
It’s made of a preserved shoulder of beef and half of a wooden box. This meat is about 3,500 years old. It was found near the entrance to a rock burial in Thebes.

The armor of Ferdinand II, the Holy Roman Emperor, that was made in the 1600s in Italy
This drawing was made approximately 700 years ago by a 7-year-old boy named Onfim who lived in Novgorod (present-day Russia).
Pope Clement XI’s chariot was designed in a sophisticated manner (the period of the papacy, from 1700 to 1721).
This oak Viking ship was discovered in 1904 near Tønsberg in Norway. The ship was set afloat in the year 820, approximately.
Roman makeup foundation that’s almost 2,000 years old

This cream was found in 2003 during the excavation of a Roman temple located in one of the districts of London. If you look closely, you can see a fingerprint on the perfectly preserved white-cream color. By the way, the cream contained animal fat mixed with starch with some tin oxide added.

The table fountain (circa 1727-1732), Meissen Manufactory, Germany

This table fountain was intended to be used for the washing of hands, although it may have been created as much for its decorative value as for its functionality.

#4 sadly there is no evidence that the mask is this old or that it was really worn by a plague doctor

And what are they going to find perfectly preserved thousands of years from our time period? Different versions of Iphones, Starbucks cups with names on them, and The Kartrashians.

Greg, maybe get out a little more. There are way more good things in this time period than trash. I would imagine the enduring things might include the first space flight, music, the internet, dog breed varieties, cars, planes, philanthropy, art, etc.... tons of stuff. Some of the negatives might include climate change and human-caused destruction, warfare, corrupt politics and government, disease, racism, urbanization, etc. Certainly real issues, not just pop culture.

Legos. What they will find is Legos & marvel at what their use may have been.

Rella, I agree with all that you said, HOWEVER, your list of climate change and human-caused destruction, warfare, corrupt politics and government, disease, racism, urbanization, etc. raises a question in my mind. WHEN in all of human history did any of these thing NOT exist??? They've ALL been around since the beginning of recorded time. Pick one and think about it. Then, pick another and see what I mean!!!

To blame us, you'll have to get real specific, like.......plastic in the ocean. Hell, I wouldn't even bet on that. We just don't have proof of it. Maybe the ancients did invent plastic, but it just takes 10,000 years to degrade? Maybe that's the reason for the extinction of a lot of ocean life! Now, I don't necessarily believe that, but who knows?

#17. Essential oils. How essential are they, really? I’ve lived almost 5 decades without them. If they’re about aesthetics, I’m still a reasonably attractive man, and not one drop has ever touched me.
