The self same thing happened here last year. It was a 25mm cannon shell. It was very similar to the one we found in another box of stuff from the same site about three months later. [:0]

As for stopping soldiers picking up antiquities - It's a losing battle. The British army spends a lot of time on presentations about not picking things up as almost anything lying around over there could ruin your day in a spectacularly loud manner. However, a friend of mine on a government funded holiday to Iraq had to punch one of his charges after a long verbal exchange, to prevent him from picking up a mine he'd taken a fancy to.
