Royal Navy Burying Ground history to be probed
The Royal Navy Burying Ground in Halifax is an almost forgotten trove of history tucked in a corner of the Canadian navy’s home base at CFB Stadacona, which has likely been there since 1759.
There are 84 grave markers, monuments to long forgotten British sailors. But it’s what can’t be seen that the navy wants to know more about.
Now, the Canadian navy is looking for a team of archaeologists to probe the graveyard. It wants to use ground-penetrating radar to find out how many are people are buried at the site aE" there could be as many as 500 people.Google+
