From long-lived materials like plastic and nuclear waste, to the millions of miles of roads spanning the planet, in modern times we have created numerous objects and landscapes with the potential to endure through deep time. Our carbon could linger in the atmosphere for 100,000 years, and the remains of our cities will still exist millions of years from now as a layer in the rock. These future fossils have the potential to tell remarkable stories about how we lived in the 21st century, suggests David Farrier, and—through literature, art, and science—he invites us to think about how we will be remembered in the myths, stories, and languages of our distant descendants.
