Resembling a golden crown and based at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, the contents of the time capsule contain public visions of how the world will look in 100 years’ time when it will be opened by future generations.
A proper blast from the past this week as Europe’s oldest hidden time capsule is revealed in Poland… What’s inside? Listen to this week’s Debrief to find out!
The time capsule discovered by workers carrying out renovation work on a church in the small town of Ziębice, dates back to 1797 making it the oldest in Europe and the second oldest in the world.
It is thought that the capsule laid under the 19th century bridge in Tczew along with a commemorative plaque to mark its opening could contain valuables belonging to the king.
