A man that was seeking relics of the World War I, found a frozen body on the top of a mountain in the Alps, northern Italy, what  it would have been a soldier of that combat.

The discovery in Trentino-Alto Adige confirms a trend of warming in the Alps, with melting glaciers recently revealing ancient treasures as well as explosives, ammunition and the bodies of troops.

“At first I saw a pile of rags and did not pay much attention. But I am a curious type, so I went closer to have a better look,” he said. “I hacked at the ice with my pick, and a boot worn by Alpine troops emerged. Only then did I realize it was the skeleton of a soldier.”

Dino De Bernadin, who discovered the remains, searches the mountains near Belluno for military relics as a hobby.

The human bone remains were found at 2,800 meters of altitude by a researcher of WWII bombs and explosives.

Experts have extracted the skeleton and transported it to a nearby military base to better analyze it. Further excavations have been ordered in the area to search for other bone remains.
