Time Capsule from 1800s Opened

Time Capsule from 1800s Discovered - Containing a Newspaper and 120-Year-Old Bottle of Whisky

Construction workers in the Scottish Highlands have found what appears to be a time capsule that was buried in the 1800s.
The metal tin similar in size to a shoe box was found by workers from construction company Morgan Sindall as they worked on Ruthven road bridge, near Kingussie in the Cairngorms.
Inside was a bottle of liquid, currently believed to be whisky, which appeared to have remained intact.
