It seems that the Victims like old ordnance will keep coming up as a reminder of the war.

For the first time I have seen "History" at close quarters,and I know that its actual process is very different from what is presented to Posterity. - WWI General Max Hoffman.

I can't find the link now, but I read yesterday that they thought the remains pre-dated WWII.

I read that the site housed a military hospital in the 1870s. The graves could have been casualties of the Franco-Prussian War and not the result of any type of atrocity.
These authorities state they could have been victims of a typhoid epidemic in 1814.

Hmm I'd be interested in the results of the Carbon14 tests. I'd say Naponleanic wars (1814) rather than the Franco Prussian war of 1870-1870. The 1870 fights were more in the Lorraine area, the 1814 fights almost everywhere...
