Artifacts speak ---

Post by RogerB » Fri Feb 28, 2020 3:42 am

Coins - collected artifacts of the minting process - speak. They document the result(s) of multiple manufacturing steps, materials, machinery and human intervention. But - just like spoken language - artifacts "speak" with only about 20% of the full meaning.

When I ask "facts" "documentation" and so forth, I am looking for the missing 80%.

I've noticed some have been looking for what is missing - and finding parts and pieces - becoming closer to the truth and understanding of their questions. Resources come from past, present; they are easily lost.
