current event

In the middle of January, while exploring Weg island Tonya Illman saw a “interesting” bottle. That glass container was a valuable bottle, it was ancient and amusing with its scroll from 131 years ago!


“I picked it [bottle] up thinking it might look nice on display in my home, and when I got back to the car, I handed it to my son’s girlfriend, Bree Del Borrello, to mind while I helped my husband get my son’s car out of the soft sand.” said Tonya Illman. She took the bottle and the scroll home, she put the scroll in the oven to let the wet and soggy scroll dry out. The doubt of finding something so old and so easy to find changed when he started reading the note. The note was in German. Thinking if they had found an amazing and ancient handmade object, they took the note to Ross Anderson, a person in charge of a museum. Anderson thinks that the note was not ripped of crumpled because the bottle was durable and hard.

The 131- year old note is in its new home in the Western Australia Museum. If you want to go see it then, go to Australia!

  1. Dear Mia,
    I really like your current event post. I wish that I was the one to discover the bottle. I think that it is really cool how there are still letters from over 100 years ago. I like history too, and I really want to go to the museum. – Emma H.
