History Fact

Since the end of WWI, over 1,000 people have died from leftover unexploded bombs.

During the Great War, an estimated 200 pounds of explosives was fired per square foot of territory on the Western front.

However, not all of these shells exploded.

Every year since the end of the war something called an “iron harvest” takes place.

This is the annual “harvest” or unearthing of unexploded WWI bombs. As well as grenades, artillery shells, and other explosives which occurs mainly during the spring planting and autumn harvest in the fields that were once the Great War’s arena.

Since 1919, over 1,000 civilians and ordnance collectors have died from explosions caused by these in France and Belgium.
