Time capsules buried for future generations
AN INSIGHT into life in South Lochaber in 2015 has been buried deep in a stone plinth for future generations to find.
Two times capsules, created by children and the community of Duror and Kentallen, were hidden away on part of the area’s cycle path last week. Photos, newspaper articles and an essay about life in the area were all placed in the capsules, along with every day items including a paper clip, which may be obsolete when it is discovered in the future.
Also included was a copy of New Scientist magazine with an article about what experts think life could be like in 2099.
Jonathan Baxter of Duror and Kentallen Community Council said: ‘These time capsules could be found in 10 years or they might never be found. I think 2099 would be a good year to suggest to future generations to open them because it would be interesting to see if the article was right about what life will be like then.’
