Edgehill Cemetery flooded in January is now being examined by Archaeologists

In January, I wrote about the damage due to flooding at Edgehill Cemetery.

Today, the Owen Sound Sun-Times reports that archaeologists are hard at work going through the bones, mapping where they are found and hoping they can match things as best they can.

The full article is available to read here.

It will be a long process to sift through the bones by metre square plots. According to the article, the Cemeteries Act requires that all the bones have to be recovered. It is up to the next of kin to determine what happens after.
