Digging Up Your Digs – Daily post prompt

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?



It is ‘Day six’ ..My SUPER-ROBOTS have been digging up this site for some time now….And now ,finally , my prayers have been answered… From the rubbles , we have come across the remnants of a house…The house seems to have stood here about 500 years ago……

Here , what is this…?? It is a long stick , with a bushy tail..  



Oh ! yes it is a ‘broom‘ …I have read about in History books…these things were used in by people many centuries back to clean their house and surroundings !!! Can’t imagine using one now…what would our CLEANING-SPECIFIC robots do then…!!

Look…here is something else….something round ,shaped like a disc.

I click a picture and feed it to    my ‘ Tablet watch’...and it comes out with the result:

This is the image of a Compact disc (CD)  It is a digital optical disc data storage format. The format was originally developed to store and play only sound recordings (CD-DA), but was later adapted for storage of data (CD-ROM) by people on earth in the 21st century .

Then I discover a long slim cylindrical substance  with pointed tip, and a lid ( which I was to learn later, as a ‘ pen ‘ that was used by ancient people to write and convey their feeling,opinions,calculations and so on ! They are ‘extinct‘ now …Today there is no concept of   ‘manual writing‘…


After a little more excavation ,we discover stacks of  printed works consisting of pages glued together along one side and bound in covers. On further research , I learnt about these ‘things’ . They were ,what these early people called  ‘BOOKS‘. It seemed , they read stories ,articles etc through these ‘scriptures’. 

Today ,we cannot fathom ,reading from such heavy , and inconvenient ‘ Books’…

Going through these excavated items ,all I can say is that I cannot began to imagine ,how people survived , 500 hundred years ago without any ‘ROBOTS’  and ‘ microchips’ and how did they carry around these cumbersome objects called ‘books’ ! They definitely seemed to have been a weird race for sure !!!
