However, seeing as it has laid there for 60 years, I can't see why it might suddenly choose to go off!

Because its been rusting away and has been disturbed. I've had years of this sort of stuff living in one of Britians most bombed cities. The government had a big purge of the harbour floor about 5 years ago and found loads of unexploded bombs and shells. We still find them when redeveloping sites aswell
