The British Are Coming !
Just kidding but thats what paul revere would have said back then, the article i bring you today is an astonishing find from 1795. On complete accident and not knowing construction workers repairing a water leak on the cornerstone on the Massachusetts State House. Not knowingly they dug right into the national treasure from 113 years ago.The contents of the box includes letters, papers, coins from the 1600’s and possibly more. They have not found all of the contents of the box just yet. They are saying that more news will be released next week. The Massachusetts State house was built in 1713, which means that the box has been there for a long long time. It was figured out by geologists that the box was unearthed in 1855, and the box was re-plastered with preserving glue. The coins found in the box was a mix from the 1600’s and then the 1850’s when it was found again 130 ish years after it was originally buried. But something interesting they did when they buried it was the box had been placed inside the solid gold lion head by samuel rogers, a local coppersmith and a assistant worker on the orignal build of the state house in 1713. This is a picture of the Gold lion that they had found buried underground. Also they did not have any idea that the capsule box was inside the lion head until a old descendant send them a letter alerting them to the find. After everything has been examined and looked at the box will have items and coins from our Era added to the box then resealed into the Gold Lion Head and be reinstated back into the ground.
This is a picture of the CornerStone of the house where the Lion was found buried behind the stone wall. It had engravings on the rock from a long long time ago.
