Future Fossils, Chapter 7 – The Barrow.

Well, last week’s post caused a bit of a stir! There has been a conversation going on, mostly on my Instagram account, about whether it is responsible to post an image of a swastika. I am delighted with this controversy – it is exactly my point. We make up stories about things, we think we have all the answers, but out knowledge is of a fleeting moment. The connection between this symbol and Nazi atrocities is very short lived in the history of the human race and yet it colours our judgement entirely. So should I have posted it or not? Did I need to put a health warning on it? I would be interested in your opinions.

In the meantime, here is chapter 7.
