Images Through Time

We like artifacts and other tangible items because they reinforce the continuum of human Life.  Holding a flaked stone artifact gives me a "feel" for someone who lived a long, long time ago.  Take a look at these old photographs - the oldest known images of folks, like us.

People are people.  Over time, we get better and better (however that may be defined!)
