World War 1 ammunition has been discovered at an altitude of 3,200 metres by a melting glacier on the Ago de Nardis peak in Trentino (Northern Italy).
More than 200 pieces of the 85-100mm caliber bullets were found at the spot which remained buried for nearly a century. These explosives weighed between seven and 10 kilos.
The weaponary has been safely disposed of by explosives experts. The unit known as Finance Police Alpine rescue unit responsible for operating in the specified area, caught sight of some brownish metal as the ice layer drifted as a result of recent heat wave.
It is assumed that bullets were spread over a 100-square-metre area between 1915 and 1918 in the battles fought fought between the armies of Austria-Hungary and Italy.
