They are, quite literally, worlds where ancient artifacts of alien races have been discovered.

You know O'Shovah's Dawnblade? Something happened on an artifact world that caused him to split from the Tau Empire, an action which was unknown in all of Tau history.

Then there's the possibility that the artifacts are Necrons, and that they wake up. Got Red Harvest?

There's also a reference in "The War of the Place of Union" of several artefact worlds being placed under Ethereal interdiction. Whatever is on them, the other four castes need not learn about...

It is my understanding that an artifact world is ethier a tomb world or a world that once held senteint life

The fact that you're alive to post, and we can read that, and people provide internet for us, while other people provide electricity, etc., suggests that the main species on Earth is still around.

I could be wrong, of course, but I think I'm alive :.
