wait! didnt they say that the envelope was from 1912? but the newspaper contained inside was from 1919? and from the above picture - those are composition books - i always keep a few around for taking notes, journals etc. am i correct?
Update: The curators returned to the stage without the secret for time travel. Instead, the package contents seem to be primarily concerned with the construction of a monument to celebrate the victory in 1612. The notebooks and newspapers contain ledgers and accounts of donations given to fund the memorial.
“It’s interesting to see how small amount of money was given,” said one of the museum curators. “Some people are giving half a dollar and some are giving a dollar.”
One of the newspapers, from August 1, 1914, mentioned that the people of Sel were “afraid the money was going to be used for something else.” Another paper contained the lyrics to an old popular song that is now used as a march in Norway.
The curators pledged to take the papers back to the Gudbrandsdal museum, where they will be put on display in glass cases, for all to see.
