A team of Australians hiking through remote jungle in Papua New Guinea has discovered a World War II battlefield, complete with the remains of Japanese soldiers.
Located near the village of Eora Creek, the battlefield was known by locals. Villagers hunted in surrounding areas, but they avoided the “lost battlefield” because they believed spirits of the dead haunted it. The site has remained virtually untouched since 1942.
The team also found ammunition, canteens, guns, boots, rifle pits and more.
