100 years have passed since the garbage from the household you examined in this group exercise was first deposited. Some materials (plastic, metal, etc.) can survive for 100 years in the ground. Other materials (paper, plant materials, etc.) cannot survive. If you only had the trash from this household that had survived for 100 years and none of the materials that have decayed, how would that change your interpretation of the trash?
In at least 750 words, describe the items that would still be visible after 100 years, and explain how you would interpret those items if you had no knowledge of the other materials that were originally in the household’s trash. Your essay should be typed, double-spaced with 1-inch margins, and in 11-12 pt.
