Jubilee Time Capsule

The Royal Commonwealth Society has launched its Jubilee Time Capsule Project to coincide with the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.  It aims to build a social archive about life in the Commonwealth over the last sixty years. It is now crowd-sourcing for content and hopes to receive stories from across the globe, and from a wide variety of age groups.  Archives, libraries and museums are encouraged to see if they have any material to contribute to the Time Capsule.

Contributions can include interviews, film, verse, photographs, art-work... and they hope to find a story for each of the 21,915 days in the last 60 years, from 6th February 1952 until 5th February 2012.

The best way of keeping updated on the project, and tracking its most interesting stories is via the Jubilee Time Capsule blog .
