The Commonwealth Jubilee Time Capsule: A people’s history of the last 60 years

2012 marks the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - that's 60 years also as Head of the Commonwealth. With your help, we want to build a unique time capsule of this time – we want to hear your story!

Pick a day from the last 60 years and tell us what happened in your family, community or country. You could interview someone, write a poem, do a drawing, take a photograph or make a film. There are 21,915 days in the last 60 years (from 6th February 1952 until 5th February 2012) and we need stories for each of them!

We know the “big” events of history already so we also want to hear from you as to what was going on in your world on each of these 21,915 days. You will be taking part in a rich archive, preserved for eternity online and presented to Her Majesty in 2012.

The Time Capsule is open to people of any age but special prizes will be given to those under 25.
You will be able to upload your entries from Commonwealth Day, 14th March 2011 but register today and get thinking about your entry in advance!
