Oldest time capsule in Europe in church spire

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The oldest time capsule ever discovered in Europe and equal in age to the oldest in the world has been discovered in Lower Silesia.

Several days ago, workers carrying out repair work on the former evangelist church in the small town of Ziębice discovered a sealed copper canister along with books and papers dating back to the 18th century.

The sensational find was made when the seven-metre spire was dismantled and the small globe that sits on top of the spire’s dome was opened. The globe had several bullet holes, probably made by Red Army soldiers as they advanced through the region in 1945.
