Time cap­sules buried for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions

The Oban Times - - News -

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.’

GO­ING UN­DER­GROUND: Duror pri­mary school pupils and mem­bers of the Duror and Ken­tallen com­mu­ni­ties buried two time cap­sules for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions

to find.
