From the newsletter, Inside (March 1997, p.3) caption below photo: Hands on: Surrey's Fine Arts students created medallions which will be sealed and buried in a container deep in the ground. Each medallion has two sides, a self-portrait and the student's view of the world today. The container is to be unearthed in the year 2097. (see Newsletter article for more information) [note: date of 2097 was later revised to 2098.]
