A Time Capsule in Boston
Oct 19, 2014 By Anita Ramachandran
Imagine uncovering a box carefully sealed and containing stuff sorted from more than 100 years ago, in a place that you would least expect!
A small copper box about the size of a shoe box was recovered from the head of a lion at Boston's State House. It contains carefully preserved sealed letters, photographs, newspaper clippings and a book. There had been rumors for some time about a time capsule hidden inside one of the lions.
Historians are now carefully studying the contents of the 113-year-old box. When the lion statue is put back to its original location, a new box containing significant material from today that will tell a story of the present will be left behind as a time capsule for somebody in the future to find.
Boston's State House
The Old State House is a popular tourist attraction in the heart of Boston city. Hundreds of people go in and out of the building every day. Even today, the building serves as a reminder to settlers of British presence in the colony. It was converted to a history museum under the care of The Bostonian Society.
This building dates back to 1713 when it was first occupied by the British during the Revolution. It was the center of all political life and debate in colonial Boston. The first reading of the 'Declaration of Independence' was read from the building's balcony in July 1776.
The building had to be restored in 1881 when wooden statues of a lion and unicorn were added to the top corners of the building. They soon rotted in the rain. Another renovation followed in 1901, when copper versions replaced them. This time though, they buried a secret inside the lion's head - for us to discover more than 100 years later!
More Time Capsules
Meanwhile, another interesting project known as "The Future Library" is in the works. One work of fiction written every year over the next 100 years will be added to a collection that will be published only in 2114. Margaret Atwood, a Man Booker prize winner, is the first novelist picked for the assignment. The book may yet be a bestseller 100 years from now. But imagine what will the reader think of the book? How will the author write the book today, not knowing who will read it in the future? The books will probably be like messages in a bottle.
Did you know that Voyager 1, the spacecraft launched in 1977 that is making its way towards the edge of the solar system is carrying a time capsule? A disk with images of 20th century Earth, music of many cultures, greetings in dozens of languages and a message from Earth. Will somebody find our message in the inter-galactic space?
