A time capsule buried almost seven days ago is to be unearthed tomorrow at a special ceremony presided over by the mayor. The week-old time capsule is believed to contain a varied selection of items representative of life in the early twenty-first century and should be of inestimable value to antiquarians piecing together a very poorly understood time in our history.
"We're very excited about the prospect of unearthing invaluable documentary evidence," said archaeologist Colin Trowel. "I personally am particularly eager to get my hands on a copy of last week's local paper, which I'm sure will make fascinating reading."
No doubt many people will find some of the attitudes and lifestyles of our ancestors intriguing and unusual, which is why the local authority have announced that they will be incorporating some of the recovered artefacts into a display in the town library. "I'm really excited that we're getting the opportunity to put this material on display," said Chief Library Thing, Margaret Binding. "I think people are really going to be astonished. For many it will be the first proper opportunity they have ever had to experience what life was really like last Tuesday."
