in reply to Future historians will find that the material characteristic of the current era is...

Depends on the nature of the Historian and the distance in the future, if we're talking post western civilisation archaeologists plastics seem a good bet.
However if we're talking a couple of hundred years hence (when western civilisation still maintains hopefully) then I guess the "Information age" tag would hold and the associated material in the minds of arts professionals tends to be silicon.
