Riddle of a cache with 170 iron crosses from Romania

Not so long ago, during a regular raid on the treasures of German soldiers in the Romanian mountains, a squad called “Romanian Military Archeology – RMA” stumbled upon one find from which everyone received an adrenaline rush.

All iron crosses were in one place, under the roots of a large tree at a depth of about 60 centimeters.

“We are tempted to say that this kind of discovery and situation itself, it’s once in a lifetime opportunity; especially here in Romania, where we don’t have a “Stalingrad” context with tons and tons of relics.”
