There are vast numbers of artefacts around that are 1000 years old. That
is no time at all.

There are possibly even more that are 2,000 years old. I remember seeing
a good exhibition of Roman glassware, and from the same period there are
the Dead Sea scrolls, many Roman and Greek sculptures, wall paintings,
coins, etc etc.

Perhaps you are thinking of 10,000 years?
