Skeletal remains emerge from New Haven Green
When Hurricane Sandy uprooted New Haven’s “Lincoln Tree,” she brought a bone-chilling discovery.
The New Haven Green was used as a burial ground for the local church in the 1700s and it’s believed that’s where these bone fragments came from, according to the New Haven Register.
“It’s at least two individuals, a child and an adult,” archaeologist Nicholas Bellantoni said to the New Haven Register. “And it’s possible they’re from four people: two kids and two adults.”
Yale Anthropology Laboratory Manager Dr. Gary Aronsen will continue researching the fragments, but Bellantoni said it may be two months before the lab work yields any information.
The “Lincoln Tree” was an oak and was planted by the city in 1909 to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.
