    First thing, congratulations on starting another year on this very interesting and exciting thread. Secondly a word of caution, when digging such deep holes it is never good to be alone. In my younger years I too dug very deep and when things collapse it is surprising (a) how quickly it happens and (b) how little soil can knock the air out of your lungs and pin you down. Anyhow I'm sure you know what your doing as where you are digging looks very solid and I'm sure moving all that soil kept you very warm. Stay safe and good luck for 2015.
    Cheers, Mark.
    Thank you Mark, I consider security requirements for the production of excavation works

    Yesterday was a bad day ...

    My friend broke the shovel like that

    Yesterday, we have been again in the field.

    Our excavations began with a fact - my shovel broken ... This is the third spade for this year ...
    Fiskars company makes comfortable shovels, but very unreliable. I think a thin metal tube, it is very bad

    I find myself going back through you page once a month to check out what's new as I have subscribed to it. I think its fantastic the amount of stuff still in the ground, you are doing a great job mate. keep it up. If I ever find myself in Russia I would love to look you up and go out for a dig with you as all I find is US and Australian stuff here in Ozz
    One question what happens to all the bodies that have been found around Stalingrad area ??
    Again keep up the fantastic work mate

    ...very interesting finds, Sebastien. Indeed, it was a very "generous" bunker.

    Hamish

    I guess we~ you and I have a LOT better than many in Ozz though~ I have followers that would kill to have ready access to the sites that we have ~

    In fact I envy you merely having a "stable" US camp access ~ ours are extremely fickle and irregular ~ Any US stuff we find is incidental and totally unpredictable ~

    Of course then there is the case of Moire digging a Werhmarct aluminium canteen cup and seeing it thrown in the recycling bin because two others reckoned it was modern trash ~ LOL

    As for the KIA remains of Stalingrad, some time ago I watched an SBS doco on the Stalingrad confrontation and the Russian government had located a local war cemetery area for the Germans,

    Subsequently the German government had contracted a local bloke to locate and relocate German remains tro the cemetery ~

    The bloke felt that his grand children would inherit this task!!!!!!!!!!!
