Re: 200-‐year-‐old Soldier Found

Hi Colin,

the dunes in northern Holland near Egmond & Bergen cover a lot of ground, have a lot of vegetation and have a lot of height differences. Also, the fighting during the 1799 campaign was very fluent: whenever a soldier came to the crest of one dune, he might either find a regrouped enemy behind it, or nothing at all, leading to units being widely dispersed across the terrain as they tried to find their way forward. So there is a fair chance more bodies will turn up over the next decades.

Cheers,
Bas
