In 1895, the people of Louisville buried a time capsule with some rare Confederate artefacts. It included everything from a cigar smoked by the Confederate President Jefferson Davis to some Confederate currency. This week, the capsule was opened to reveal that it's now just a bunch of soggy garbage. How fitting.
Researchers in Poland have uncovered a time capsule, dating from 1934. But this isn't some ordinary time capsule with the run of the mill items you might expect.

This week the city of Dana Point, California opened up a time capsule that the community sealed back in 1966. The metal tube, safely tucked inside a boulder in 1968, contained a lot of things you'd expect in your average 20th century capsule — like photos and newspapers.

Five years ago, Jennifer Storrar and Troy Reddington buried a time capsule together on a remote campsite in South River, Ontario.

The note read, "Will you marry me?"
A time capsule sealed by a bank in 1916 was opened in Saratoga Springs, New York this week.
