A construction crew in Philadelphia is digging up things from the past...literally. PMC Properties found some human bones in the fall when they began construction on an apartment building in the historic district of the town. Now, they're finding fully intact coffins.
The site used was a burial ground dating back to 1707 but it was believed the bodies had been exhumed and moved to another cemetery in the 1800s.
Kimberlee Moran, an associate teaching professor who was brought on board by PMC Properties, says as many as 60 individuals have been found since February. In one morning alone, workers uncovered about two dozen intact coffins.
