Robert Burns Statue time capsule

Read about the opening of the time capsule that was discovered under the Robert Burns Statue on Bernard Street in Leith.

A time capsule discovered in Leith containing relics from the 19th century has offered a glimpse into locals’ love of the national bard, on the eve of Burns Night.

The cache of mementos was unearthed by contractors working on the City of Edinburgh Council's Trams to Newhaven project in December, when the Robert Burns statue on Baltic Street was temporarily removed to make way for construction.
