|Mexico City and Xochimilco||"The time capsule, a lead box, was hidden in a hollow stone ball on top of a bell tower to mark the two-hundred-foot tall tower’s completion on May 14, 1791, two hundred eighteen years after construction began. Inside was a case of wax blessed by the sitting Pope and an engraving of St. Barbara to ward off lightning. A parchment listed the capsule’s contents, including 23 medals, five coins, and five small crosses made of palm fronds that the parchment said were “for protection from the storms.”"|
