Construction crews discovered the capsule while repairing the Napa County Courthouse, Paleofuture reported. The courthouse was damaged in the deadly 6.0 earthquake last August.READ MORE: Man Arrested In Package Thefts In Santa Clara Neighborhood

As for the ammunition, John Thill of the Napa County Library told Paleofuture he wasn’t sure why it was included, saying “my guess is the ammunition came from one or more of the bailiffs working at the courthouse, I’m not sure what their motivation was.”
