History is everywhere–from the grandest tombs to the thrift store down the street. And, while we all love a good archaeological dig full of groundbreaking historical artifacts and treasures, some of the most fascinating historical mementos are the day-to-day notes and photos from people in the past. The types of things that remind us they weren't so different from the people of today.
Over at r/FoundPaper, people are sharing the bits of history they've found in the wild. They're documenting all the love notes, pictures, and angry customer service letters for us to enjoy years later, and while they're not as big as, say, King Tut's tomb, they're still a great window into the past.
