By discovering objects from the past, archaeologists are a lot like time-travellers: they travel back into time and bring back artefacts for us to imagine what life was like back then. What if, instead of going back in time, what if archaeologists could travel into the future and collect artefacts from there? What if they brought back people’s favourite objects or their life-critical possessions? Looking at these artefacts, would we want to live in such a future? Is there anything we can do today to lead ourselves to the most desirable future possible?
