Storyline

You're a human from the future and you've been sent back in time to mark potential historical sites for excavation and preservation. 

A thousand years from now, not much is left of the sculptures, carvings, and architectural wonders of our time. But New York in the 2020s is choc-full of them! You need to find them and spray-tag them with an invisible nanomachine so that a thousand years from now someone can dig them up and put them on display.
