Buried metal

From: Jack Ogden <jack>
Date: Thursday, July 8, 2004
There are sometimes minute, very fragile meandering tubes on ancient
buried metal objects that I have always thought of as 'worm casts'
(though that might not be the right term). They are, presumably, a
good sign of authenticity (they are small and very fragile and
follow the topography of the object/corrosion). Does anyone know of
any research that has been done on these?
