It is nice to know that we are uncovering and discovering items from the past. There is a wealth of history around us and finding preserved items gives us a better understanding of our ancestors.
Finding treasures and items of interest from the past only leads us to speculation. We can only theorise what story they tell. Even if there is found a diary of events it must be concluded that the author could only speak from their limited point of view.
The past is greatly varied, and we will never truly know the correct and all details of what the ancestors did and how they really lived.
