Summary

Four parasite samples were recovered from sediment contained within brick shaft features at the Philadelphia MDC Site (36PH91) in downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Parasite analysis was undertaken on sediment from levels that either appeared to contain fecal matter or from deposits that should have contained fecal matter if any were present in the feature. The presence of human parasites assists in identifying the function of these features, as well as provides some information concerning health and sanitation.
