Time capsule s back in 1976 were something quite new to NZ the design for Motat capsule was copied from a similar version in Sydney Australia and placed at the same depth. The building above it was one of the earliest buildings added to the site. The capsule was seen as an anchor securing Motat to the site. It was bored during the construction of the building and into solid rock. I believe close to the water level of the adjacent lake. Time will reveal all.
