A snapshot in time

Suffolk Archives Foundation Trustees David and Jane were very pleased to attend the burial of a time capsule in the curtilage of The Hold recently.

The capsule was one of 9 that were buried on February 28th at various locations around the county, to mark not only the building of The Hold but also the 900th anniversary of the oldest treasure in the Suffolk Archives – the Charter of Henry 1st to the monks of Eye.

The capsule locations were:

Ipswich
Felixstowe
Framlingham
Eye
Lowestoft
Stowmarket
Bury St Edmunds
Mildenhall
Haverhill

Staff from the Record Office worked with a team of Graduates from the Suffolk Graduate Partnership Scheme to engage school pupils and other groups to contribute items, creating a snapshot of Suffolk life in 2019 – to be uncovered again in 2119! Here are a selection of images from each location. More are available on the County Council’s Flickr page here.
