    Are we in the aluminium Ring-pull age still, or has this been superseded by the water bottle protective top people? Will the future archaeologists grade shards of car windscreen glass, and painstakingly analyse remnants of chewing gum and cigarette butt filters to locate the sites of entrances to workplaces, transport stations and public houses? What will constitute a valuable find? Surely not an Argos 9ct gold ear stud or sleeper. Will they analyse garden pond silt deposits for pollen from Mediterranean garden plants to indicate we lived in the early 21st century?

    All ideas welcome - perhaps we could write a guide for the future Time Teams.

    The remains of supermarket shopping trollies will indicate the course of former streams, rivers, culverts and canals!

    Yes, this will identify the council areas!! :D

    Petrified dog poo will indicate where our recreational areas were!

    Future studies will erroneously hypothesise that a man's social status was directly proportional to the amount of sovereign rings and chains found on his skeletal remains! :o

    It would also mean that we worshipped rivers by pushing "sacrifices entrapped" in the trolleys into the rivers.

    What will they make of concentrations of white goods - washing machines, fridges, microwaves and sofas in the same locations, in front of old dwelling sites? Will they be able to identify the petrified poo of staffy crosses, and the tooth marks of the same in the area to the rear of said dwellings? Will they deduce we actually lived outdoors, and kept our valuables indoors protected from the rear by fierce guard dogs?

    The body’s and preserved Burberry caps of neds piled high shall indicate where I went mad and shot the lot of them for stealing our car - and my favourite hoodie was in there as well.

    Gosh! You must live in a wild place, sammie. Here everything would be picked clean by waves of SOCOs, bagged, and then lost in some unnamed repository.

    The thought of finding a fossilized Traffic Warden may raise eyebrows :lol:

    Seriously toxic layer I think, in the whole Universe we probably hold the record if not we are in the Top Ten :lol: The layer will be quite greedy too and fleece any future geologist of all money and possessions without moving. It may even offer them a lone...

    Alternatively:- If all that is done is the will of God, then all we are doing is concentrating materials, many and varied, also generating massive amounts of Radio waves of various frequency's to spue out into space forever. We are evolving the planet and ourselves.

    The layer will be useful probably or God would have not bothered.

    If this sort of thing has happened before then the radio waves advertise our presence, possibly for the collection of concentrated materials, or dinner :lol:

    Lovely question CK :)

    Forget the 6 inch deep Iridium anomaly from 65 million years, we'll leave a 10ft deep McDonalds Wrapper anomaly!!
