The Oldest Stuff on (and Off) Earth!

The Roundhay Garden Scene

The Roundhay Garden Scene was filmed in 1888, making it the oldest surviving movie. At only two seconds long, it depicts the director's family wandering around a posh garden having a good old Victorian time. Sure, it's not The Avengers, but it was revolutionary for its time and it immortalizes a fascinating slice of 19th Century life. Check it out here.
