In June 2010 three deminers were killed in the German city of Goettingen, by the detonation of a projectile of 500 kilos before he could be disabled.

And do not think it will be the last news of explosions war materiel ...

HAHA.... yup its true.. happens all the time in the UK to be honest. Some part of the country is pulling WW2 ordnance out of the ground on a daily basis. Same as in Germany I suspect.

That looks pretty much intact, wonder if the engine could be fixed and made to fly.

Yes... swamps and such like are the best for preserving degradeable matter. Peat Bogs are the best.

This man was found in a peat bog... he dates to 400BC.



The Tollund Man is the naturally mummified corpse of a man who lived during the 4th century BC, during the time period characterised in Scandinavia as the Pre-Roman Iron Age.<sup id="cite_ref-pbs1_0-0" class="reference"> </sup> He was found in 1950 buried in a peat bog on the Jutland Peninsula in Denmark, which preserved his body. Such a find is known as a bog body.<sup id="cite_ref-bog_1-0" class="reference"> </sup>The head and face were so well-preserved that he was mistaken at the time of discovery for a recent murder victim.<sup id="cite_ref-lib_2-0" class="reference"></sup>
