Could time travelers save Greed & Gilgamesh?
Started reading In the Garden of Iden, which both Timothy Sandefur & kk recommended. After 7 chapters, the jury's clearly still out (all intro so far - a real void of dramatic tension), but as i tried to describe the basic conceit to the Ginger Haired Yank i tried to come up with examples of works of arts that time travelers are hopefully saving now. First one that came to mind was Greed. Next Gilgamesh & Satyricon. But finally i came up with the key cultural artifact time travelers should save - the master BBC tapes of 21st Century Schizoid Man.
