Summary

The Bioarchaeology of the Columbian Harmony Cemetery Series (51NE049), Washington, D.C.

Archaeological investigations on a portion of the Columbian Harmony Cemetery in Washington, D.C. resulted in the identification of 231 grave features, many of which had been disturbed by a cemetery relocation project that took place in 1960. Information obtained from skeletal and dental analyses have provided information on 19th and early 20th century patterns of burial, postmortem treatment (i.e., embalming and autopsy) of human remains, and antemortem intervention to remedy medical and dental trauma and pathology.
