Madison in 100 objects: These are the things that define us. (Wisconsin State Journal, 7/6/2014)
Lists! We love lists! Ancient civilizations are defined by their artifacts. If Madison were suddenly smothered by a Mount Vesuvius, or swallowed up by Lake Mendota like Atlantis, what would future archaeologists conclude about us? What would we want them to find — and what would we wish had stayed buried forever?
