    The Opening of a "Time Capsule" Package (1910s) from Small Town of Sel in Norway

    This video is mainly in Norwegian with some minimal English translation. The English language news articles leading up to the opening indicate that they thought it was put together in 1912 and clearly intended for opening in 2012. They also indicate that the mayor who put it together gave it to the town in the late 1920s (it seems from the video he was slipping things in after 1912). At any rate, it is interesting to see what was considered important a hundred years ago (and led me to some reflections on the importance of paper then versus electronic media now). If anyone with appropriate language ability would care to elaborate on what the actual documents included were, it would be appreciated.

    That was a good article to be read. I do know the place Ahvenkoski only by going by bus to St. Petersburg several times.
