Jules Verne Time Capsule Has Been Discovered In France

I came across an article on Bustle's website titled, Jules Verne's Time Capsule Was Just Discovered By Archaeologists In France by Kristian Wilson. In the article, Kristian Wilson wrote:
On Apr. 4, researchers from Paris Descartes University and The Explorers Club NYC announced that a time capsule — which may, in fact, be Jules Verne's time capsule — has been discovered in France. Archaeologists and historians found a metal box, dating to the late 1800s, which appears to contain "documents, books and metal objects of different sizes and shapes." With the potential to contain unpublished materials from the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea author, the find has excited historians and book nerds alike.
Pretty exciting news to me!! I've read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne 2-3 times and love this novel. I look forward to hearing what this time capsule contains.
