CONSTRUCTION workers dug up a 121-year-old time capsule, whose contents included a bottle of whisky, near Ruthven road bridge in the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland.
The metal box, the size of a shoe box, contained a newspaper dated September 29, 1894, a paper scroll and a bottle filled with dark amber liquid.
The items have all been donated to the Highland Folk Museum in nearby Newtonmore. A representative of the construction company, Morgan Sindall, told the BBC that they had actually been working with children from Kingussie Primary School to create their own 2015 time capsule, which they all hoped would last as long.
