Returning to a familiar place of comfort invokes warm memories and the wonder of re-discovering lost tokens, the things others have left behind.

This discovery connects the present to the past, a single powerful story line starting from birth and reaching back over the millennium.

Small mementos, some history, some family, some loss or triumph.
