A project to lay a new pipeline through an area that was once part of the Western Front is yielding a large number of archeological finds.
As Belgian energy company Fluxys works to put the pipeline in place, archeologists are taking the opportunity to take part in the largest-ever excavation of First World War battlefields.
Reports state that every day they are finding a range of items from regimental badges, to discarded weapons, to remains of uniforms and helmets.
The hope is that the Belgian government will donate the finds to a museum – perhaps creating a new collection that provides an insight – 100 years on – into the realities of the Western Front
