Afghanistan, Archaeological Remains of Jam

Afghanistan? Liar.

The only archaeological remains of jam you ever saw was that time you dropped the strawberry jelly down the back of the sofa.
The Archaeological Remains of Jam is a weeks hike from civilization with a military escort. Only completely insane people go there.
But I like jam,
Some of mine I only "saw" in the loosest sense. I haven't been inside the Tower of London or Westminster Abbey, and I spent a week in a house overlooking Skellig Michael but never took the trip out.
I count 42. Some of them are in brackets cause I haven't visited them yet, but will for certain within the next month or two.
