Well, I would want to mark the site, otherwise it might never be found. I keep thinking about how humanity frequently finds various artifacts
hidden, and then archaeologists/linguists set to deciphering the intent and meaning of the artifacts.
I'd think that radioisotopes would be difficult for anyone to acquire. Your idea of a large mass of metal is a good one; perhaps something
nonferric, but shaped into a circle or triangle? Or both?
That's the crux of the problem, I think..... given even 1000 years and a myriad of natural and manmade disasters, can we make anything that will
survive to say "look here".
Information that I think would be good to preserve, within context of the OP, would possibly be a cross-section of many cultures, poetry, literature,
music, art, languages, mathematics, sciences, astronomy, DNA??? seeds-- all measures of the growth and decline of human beings. A testimony to
"what happened" would be important as well. Will some creatures look upon our traces 6,000 or so years from now and ask the question: What
happened to them? or worse yet, some claim that we existed (ancient civilization), while others just attribute that to fringe thinking?
Maybe there should be a bunker on the Moon.
