I was inspired to write Rise and Shine after many years of reading books and watching Discovery Channel specials about anomalous historical artifacts. Our past is merely a fairy tale we make up based upon very limited evidence rescued from the harsh forces of entropy.
Decomposition, corrosion, and the meddling hand of man erode away form, function, and style of natural and crafted clues to our path through time.
I recently stumbled upon this interesting post about the top ten most interesting artifacts of lost technologies from the ancient world. There’s plenty more, but these ten could easily spark the curiosity of the skeptical.
