“HONOLULU, Dec. 11 (AP) – Using radar equipment along a wall of a landmark Hawaiian building, military specialists on Saturday quickly located a time capsule buried by King Kamehameha V in 1872.
Historians know the capsule contains priceless pieces of the islands’ history, including photographs of some royal families from a line begun by Kamehameha the Great, who united the islands by 1810, and a constitution of the Hawaiian Kingdom. But until now the capsule’s exact location was unknown.”
