    I'm curious about how the interiors of the bunkers came to be so completely buried? They are built underground, so over the years I can see the soil settling a great deal, but I would expect some void to remain. Were the bunkers filled in after the war?

    Ye a lot of trenches and bunkers was back filled. Very rarely people find semi intact bunkers. The roof construction is often made out of big logs. The rot and the roof collapses and fall to the floor. Then rain, vegetation and weather fill the hole up with soil.

    Here is a good example of a quite large bunker we found in Belyi, the Rzhew salient. All the logs from the roof are now on the floor.
