Using ground penetrating radar, experts hope to identify roughly 100 unmarked graves in the Old Parkville Cemetery.
A team of geologists, historians and archivists began the painstaking process of scouring four-acres of land in the old cemetery on Monday, May 15.
Old Parkville Cemetery is located on the west side of Highway 9 between downtown Parkville and Riss Lake.
Keith Seramur, a geoarchaeologist, used radar to scan every foot of land up to 40 times.
“The radar goes down and looks for reflections across the grid. We collect these little lines of data and then put into the model,” said Seramur. For more on story.
