World’s Oldest Message Found In A Bottle On Australian Beach (pic) by BrainnewsRadio(f): 12:06pm On Mar 08
This is the oldest message in a bottle that has ever been discovered. It was stumbled upon on an Australian beach by a group of walkers who became the first people to read the note inside since June 12, 1886. .

The group, which included the parents of Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo, shook the bottle and a damp, rolled-up parchment that looked like a cigarette fell out.

According to Metro UK, the large rectangular bottle was found half-buried in sand dunes on a beach near Australia’s Wedge Island. And after weeks of research and investigation, it has been confirmed as an authentic find that was thrown from a German ship into the Indian Ocean.

After warming the 132-year-old note in an oven, they established that the message written in German contained instructions asking the finder to send details of where and when it was found.

Mr Illman used Google Translate to decipher the rest of the text. It is believed to have been thrown from the German sailing ship Paula as part of an experiment to research ocean currents and find faster shipping routes, the Western Australian Museum said.

Interesting Find

This is misleading.

This is possibly not the "Oldest Message" in the world today.

What happened to cavemen inscriptions and papyrus documentations in ancient Egypt?
