Date: The future
Subject: Professor Eric Blair, Faculty of Useless Knowledge, the University of Wasteful Research
Interview by Steven Schwartz
SS: Welcome Professor Blair. We are pleased that you have agreed to discuss your discovery with us tonight.
EB: Delighted to be here.
SS: So, let's begin. Why did you pick Canberra as the place to start your journey?
EB: Canberra has long been deserted and archaeologists have ignored it. I thought it might be an opportunity to shed some light on a neglected part of history.
SS: But you found Canberra not really deserted?
EB: No. I met a traveller.
SS: What did he tell you?
EB: He said that right in the middle of Canberra, in the midst of a desert of lone and level sands, I would find the remains of a once great Parliament House.
SS: And did you?
EB: I believe so, although only two wings of stone, half sunk in the sand remain.
