Right but I thought they detected bodies in neat rows with even spacing between them and some were children because children died pretty regularly in the 19th century

The diversity hire ground penetrating radar professor misinterpreted drainage and sewage lines dug decades earlier as "mass graves" as debunked by amateur researchers with construction records and aerial photographs, along with an actual Simon Fraser University archeological dig decades earlier of the same area that everyone conveniently memory-holed.

I'm pretty sure I heard about the same technology being used that found an old graveyard from the 19th century somewhere else then.

Too bad this nonsense clogs up the search results so I can't find the actually interesting story.

No. They used some gadget that detects "anomalies" in the ground, but those anomalies could be a thousand other things besides human remains.

A child had approximately a 50% chance of making it to adulthood in the 19th century. Life before antibiotics, blood tests, and x-rays was pretty shitty.
