Taking it With You …

A recent on-line article told about the items that people are buried with.  Over the years, people have “gone to the grave” with an assortment of things … cases of beer, wine, favorite cigars, golf clubs.  But the newest trend is to be buried with technological gadgets, with the TV remote being the most common item.

 The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology displays items found in ancient caskets as they show how people lived.  Their spokesperson said it was “a little terrifying to think about whatever we choose to put into our graves could be the contents of future museums and possibly all people know about us.” 

Have you known anyone who was buried with anything unusual?  Do you have plans to take anything with you?
