Those would all succumb to the destructive nature of the elements. All metals eventually oxidize. Some would be buried. Others would be repurposed and then eventually lost.
Google the baghdad battery though. A very interesting ancient artifact. Or just google OOparts in general. Heck ill go find a link.
I like history channel's life after people series, it's an interesting take on how quickly things break down when left to the elements.. without people around to maintain and repair the things that exists presently, nature comes in and reclaims it rather quickly.. bacteria and insects have free reign, animal and plant life.. not much is left even after a couple hundred years.
