If you were to plan something to confuse future archeoligists, what would it be?
There have been many archeological fakes. There are many other things that leave archeologists scratching their heads, tossing in more research dollars than can be imagined… never finding an answer.
If I could, I would arrange to be buried or to leave behind something that would be for no other reason than to confuse future scientists. Yes, I am strange because, yes, I spend more time than is “healthy” thinking about this.
For an example, here is something I would do:
I would have it arranged for me to be buried with like minded people (my wife is one, she has the same sort of sense of humor) in the woods, a circle of people buried upright, facing inward, with their feet locked behind their heads, and their little fingers in their mouths. In the center on a stone slab is one person curled on their side, soles of their feet pressed to their forehead and tied there with intricate knots, with their hands crossed in a way that their hands are tied to their opposite elbows. There would have to be at least 4 circles like this.
In my ultimate fantasy I would leave a stone tablet on the other side of the world in such a way as to be discovered centuries later with one message… “you have been had” and a map of where our bodies were discovered.
