ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Archaeologists are examining several wooden caskets unearthed by a road construction crew working on a federal stimulus project in Albany.
Albany city archaeologist Michael Warner said it’s not clear how many caskets are buried at the site on Delaware Avenue, where crews made the discovery Sept. 29 while working on a nearly $15 million reconstruction project.
Warner said no skeletal remains have been found yet.
Work on the stretch of road where the caskets were found has been halted while archaeologists examine the site.
Officials are looking into whether the caskets were buried in a Roman Catholic cemetery that was located in the area before being moved to another site around 1910.
