The Ancient Library

This is an old library found in a remote temple complex in the wilds of Cambodia.


It's hard for me to imagine what a library was like back then. A library in the 12th century must have been very interesting. Almost 1,000 years ago, I imagine it was probably filled with all sorts of fascinating scrolls and documents. Without the Internet, it must have been the most interesting thing to do one a boring day. I wonder what it would be like to rip back in time and show them the iPhone and then show them some ancient-scroll app on from the App Store. I'm pretty sure the AT&T connectivity would be about as good as it is in 2009.
