let's imagine a world where there is a nuclear holocaust that pretty much wipes out civilization as we know it.
now, a few people who do not have knowledge of technology survive. say, kids or something.
fast forward one thousand years or so. assume that the people now populating the earth had found remnants of machinery, etc., from the "old world."
assuming that they don't have any great technology to build things, no plastics, etc, what everyday items from the modern world would be duplicable?
what social mechanisms would you expect to have carried over intact?
thanks for your reply.
