WW I Soldiers Perfectly Preserved in Trench Given Mitary Burial

Archaeologists recently discovered 21 World War I German soldiers who were buried alive in 1918 when an Allied shell exploded above their shelter near Alsace. According to The Mail Online, the bodies were in the same position they were in when the shell exploded 95 years ago. Germany recently gave the soldiers a full military burial. The Mail has lots of interesting pictures.

This might be a great story for students when we study World War 1.  Thanks to Shawn McCusker for tweeting the link.
