Thank you, Michael. Personally, I quite like the idea that "Waves, storms, and rust will wipe this microscopic archaeology from coastal Normandy in another hundred years, and with it, the physical remembrances of WWII," which sounds like
"The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores."
This research on the sand grains prompted a question that Wikipedia, I find, has already answered:

"Samples were gathered and sold to mineral collectors as a novelty."
