Kleinpeter surveying Historic Highland Cemetery in Baton Rouge prior to beginning excavations.Photo: Ryan Seidemann screening a pile of rubble that was once two above-ground tombs in the Mt. Bethel Baptist Church Cemetery in Carville, Louisiana.  These tombs were destroyed during poorly planned renovations and the materials (including the human remains) were put out for garbage pick-up.  All of the rubble had to be processed to remove human remains and burial artifacts for the purposes of analysis and reinterment.Photo: Elizabeth and Michael Seidemann screening dirt for their father a Historic Highland Cemetery in Baton Rouge.Photo:
