The newly unearthed time capsule filled Shenandoah University staff and students alike with excitement. But what had the class of 1993 left in the container for the people of 2018 to find? Well, as the box’s lid came off, the assembled crowd caught a glimpse of its colorful contents. And the college kids realized that the capsule was stuffed with treasures from yesteryear.
Of course, movies such as Back to the Future make the notion of time travel an exciting concept. In the absence of a DeLorean, though, the real-world time stream only moves forward. But there are actually ways in which we can interact with the future and give those who dwell within it an insight into the past.
Time capsules, for example, normally contain significant objects or personal items for future discoverers to explore. You may have even contributed to – or opened – one of these caches yourself at some point. It’s a practice that has quite a long history, after all, as recent findings prove.
