Long sought-after ‘time capsule’ discovered after Confederate statue is removed

What is thought to be a time-capsule has been discovered under the remains of a plinth that held a statue of a Confederate leader in Virginia.

Crews wrapping up the removal of the Robert E Lee statue in Richmond in the state made the discovery on Monday, with the likely contents said to be long sought-after.
