ECR Time Capsule 2019

Calling all Early Career Researchers! Don't forget to send items for the BSSS Time Capsule.

The Time Capsule will, we hope, capture your experiences of being an Early Career Researcher. We are seeking photographs, anecdotes, memories, papers, thesis acknowledgments, and indeed anything else you feel sums up your early career experience.

The deadline to send in your contributions is the end of August!

There are two ways to ‘deliver’ your contributions. First, you can send your items digitally to Dan Evans by emailing Second, you can post your items to the following address: Mr Dan Evans, c/o: British Society of Soil Science, Building 52a, Cranfield University, College Rd, Cranfield MK43 0AL.

We would encourage you to indicate your name on either the item itself or on a slip of paper attached to the item, and maybe your institution.

The capsule will be buried on World Soil Day 2019, and will be retrieved at our Society’s 100th anniversary celebrations in 2047.

If you have any questions regarding the Time Capsule, please don’t hesitate to email Dan on
