Analyzing Ossuary Skeletal Remains

Record #:
: In southeastern North Carolina the remains of what could have been ossuary burial practices have been observed since the late 1800s. In 1884 J. A. Holmes observed that the burial mounds in Duplin, Sampson, Robeson, Cumberland, and southern Wake counties had certain common characteristics. In this article Hogue outlines methods for analyzing the skeletal material found in these ossuaries.
