A&H Discovers 1860 Time Capsule in Raleigh


Abstract:
A project to construct additional parking in Raleigh led to the discovery of a time capsule from 1860. Staff archaeologist John W. Clauser halted construction on the hunch that the monument, to be destroyed during construction, be inspected further. Clauser's hunch was correct and a rusted tin box contained illegible papers, parts of scripture, antebellum coins, railroad artifacts, and various tools.
