ThomasPowers Posted March 24, 2010 Share Posted March 24, 2010 I was just thinking that almost all the "work" I have done in IT is/will likely be gone long before I am; but I have seen a boot scraper that my Great Grandfather made as a smith in a rural town in AR and likewise I expect that my great grandkids will be able to see or hold items that I have made as a smith. How lucky We Are to be able to create tangible things that will go on down through the years. I feel like we owe it to the future to help others gain this *valuable* skill to travel through time both forward and backwards. I recently did a demo for a medieval/renaissance writing group at the local Uni and one of the things I brought was an original renaissance german crossbow quarrel point so that they could actually *hold* something that came from the times they were writing about (also some repro viking era cooking gear) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
