More skeletal remains found at Lake George construction site

Local

Less than a week after a skeleton was found at a construction site at Lake George, officials said at least 10 more bodies have been unearthed.

The skeletal remains are believed to be people who died during the Revolutionary War.

Experts said the graves were spaced in a way that makes them think it was a planned burial site. Buttons found at the site indicate at least one of the bodies is a Pennsylvania soldier.

Archaeologists will remain on site until they excavate the bones.
