By Emily Corio

You don’t normally think about coming across an explosive device when hiking or camping in  West Virginia, but in the northern Monongehela National Forest, it’s something you might keep in mind.An area called Dolly Sods was used as an artillery training ground for the U.S. Army during World War Two.This left behind ordnance. This summer, West Virginia University students will comb through the soil and sample streams, trying to find out what else was left behind.
