A sandwich from 1886
In Copenhagen there is a museum called the workers' museum. The museum was founded in 1983 and it contains a lot of different objects. One of those objects is an old sandwich. In 1986 some people were renovating a room in a Danish castle called Rosenborg. Behind a mirror they found an old sandwich which had been wrapped in newspaper. The newspaper was from 1886 so the sandwich was exactly 100 years old.
The sandwich probably belonged to a worker who was renovating the castle in 1886, but it is unclear how the sandwich ended behind the mirror. Maybe one of his friends hid the sandwich as a joke or maybe he just left it there and forgot about it. Mice or rats didn't touch the sandwich and 100 years later the bread was extremely dry and hard as stone. The person who lost or forgot his sandwich in 1886 is no longer alive, but his sandwich has become part of a historical exhibition.
