Scientists find a body. It is a soldier’s body. He died during World War One. He was between 20 to 25 years old. Scientists also find his clothing and things. We know that he was German.

He was found in a fortress. This fortress is in France. It is important.

Over 16 million people died in World War One. It began in 1914 and ended in 1918.

Difficult words: scientist (clever person who is an expert in something), fortress (large, strong building for war).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
