DATELINE: King’s Cross, 2511... and as usual, we’re there with the news.
This week, an edition of the New Journal was buried in a brass time capsule deep within the foundations of the new medical science laboratory, The Crick Institute, being built on land behind the British Library at Brill Place.
Other items buried included work by children at St Mary and St Pancras Primary School, architects’ plans of the building and letters from scientists who will work there.
St Mary and St Pancras pupil Raihan Chowdhury said: “We have put in pictures of Somers Town and written about what it is like around here.”
Centre director Sir Paul Nurse was joined by Tory science minister David Willetts and London Mayor Boris Johnson at the ceremony.
