What do our ancestors leave us with?

Krishan Coupland, 31

They might leave us with things – sometimes an overwhelming number of them; objects detached from the memories that give them meaning. They might leave us stories – tales told and re-told concerning incidents from long ago, which take on a special significance in the course of being passed on. They might leave us with a house – a place to live, and within which, to craft a future. They might leave us everything, or nothing at all.
