    Not to be judgmental, but is that really the crew and how they are equipped to investigate near century old munitions?

    It's a British/European thing. The Brits use the term "corn" to mean "grain" not "maize".

    I was conducting a search in the PNW a few years back. Ran across a individual who just got his PhD in Biology from Oregon St. For his thesis, he and a professor found a microbe that will basically eat dynamite.

    He said there is a catalog of thousand of un-exploded dynamite bundles in mines throughout the Western US. This basically renders a site unusable unless it can be removed or re-mediated.

    That's a European term of any "corn producing (kernel)" crop. Must be link out there.
