Workers excavating an old South Carolina cemetery have uncovered over 350 sets of human remains.

The remains were unearthed on land located on Reid Street at former cemetery property where the Charleston Housing Authority plans to build apartments. A few of the remains were able to be identified thanks to 150 year old tin tags with names and dates on them.

Head over to The Post and Courier for this fascinating story.
