Archaeologists and historians have begun the excavation of the largest WWI mass grave ever discovered. The site at Fromelles on the Somme is thought to contain as many as 400 remains. Most are thought to be Australian, though with some British soldiers amongst them. All were killed during a diversionary attack during the battle of the Somme and buried by the German army shortly afterwards. The BBC site has two articles on this, the second being a video clip of the excavations. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7430622.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/7428393.stm I have recently visited the cemetaries and memorials around Ypres. They never fail to make an impact no matter how many times I go back to them.
