A 100 years old mystery is about to be solved later on today according to Verdens Gang, a Norwegian newspaper with the unwrapping of a mystery package.
Stocks in oil? Historical documents? A small treasure? Speculation over what might be inside a 100-year-old package that’s set to be unsealed this Friday in a small town in Norway abounds. Verdens Gang explains that the package has been kept in a museum in Gudbrandsdal and dates all the way back to August 26th, 1912. It carries a note from a man named Johan Nygard, specifying that it is not to be opened until 2012.
There are few clues about what the package might contain. What is known is that Nygard was involved in local politics and that he reportedly walked up to the mayor and handed him the package telling him that its contents would “benefit and delight future generations,” according to a video that was posted the Verdens Gangwebsite.
This Friday, August 24th, residents of the town will finally find out what’s inside. VGTV.no will be live broadcasting the opening of the Norway package on Friday at noon EST. We will keep you posted.
