World's oldest message in a bottle washes up in Germany after 108 years at sea

A message in a bottle thrown into the sea 108 years ago by British scientists has been discovered washed up on a beach in Germany. It is believed to be the oldest message-in-a-bottle ever found. Marianne Winkler, a retired post office worker, found the message from the past while on holiday with her husband on the North Sea island of Amrum. Mrs Winkler found the bottle in April, but was shy of publicity and the full story has only now emerged.”
