Test Pits Allow Us to See a Cemetery’s Earlier Design

In order to test out the results of the geophysical survey of the cemetery, we are opening several 2 x 2 meter test pits to explore what is just below the surface. Our aim it only to locate missing headstones and footers, to find the archaeological evidence of the earlier pathways through the cemetery, and to recover small finds that reflect the use of the cemetery over almost 200 years.
