Time Erases All – #WeekendWritingPrompt

Ink will fade

given long enough.

Even stone weathers,

back to rock

with the help of time.

    1. You’re quite right. From a historical point of view it can be frustrating. I’m trying to research something at the moment and the records are just not there, they’ve faded into the ether of time.

      1. Oh, how frustrating! Some records are lost between meticulous paperwork of old and the fleeting storage of before these digital times (where everything is probably digitally SOMEPLACE, if one only knows where it can be…). Whatever the records you are searching for, are, I hope you find them, or find something close enough to them to give you what you need.

        1. It’s seventeenth and eighteenth century records on Shropshire witch trials so the chances of them being digitised are quite low unfortunately. In most cases the information may not have even been recorded in much detail.
