Our site team at The Hold, in Ipswich, were pleased to host the burial of a one of nine time capsules buried across Suffolk yesterday. The capsules were buried to mark the 900th anniversary of the oldest document in the county’s record office collections – the Royal Charter of King Henry I, from Eye – and the building of The Hold.

Paul West, Suffolk Cabinet Member, was joined by Tim Greenacre from the University of Suffolk, the Major of Ipswich, Jane Riley, and pupils from 2 local primary schools, to see this snapshot of life in 2019, buried in the footings of this new heritage centre.
