The past beneath the surface

Time is said to erase the past, but it often hides beneath the surface.
An area like Alsace is such a place, including three major wars.
The Franco-German War, World War One and World War Two.
Not only on the many exposed crosses in the landscape,
but also things that come to the surface – for example when ploughing.
Lots of different remains appear – ammunition casings too.

We humans never learn from history and from mistakes.
