Kingston University Time Capsule

The other day we snuck into the ceremonious opening of a jar buried beneath a plinth since 1952. The time capsule was left by people at the university for people of the future. Within the capsule was a list of staff, two paper clips, a compass and a drawing pin. I think they had unwittingly thought we probably wouldn't be using these tools anymore, and I like the way such tiny objects have kept the University organised and running smoothly for sixty years and more to come.
