Spotlighting the Institute for Research and Learning in Archaeology and Bioarchaeology and their work at the Harrison Township/ Cholera Cemetery in Harrison Township, Pickaway County, Ohio

This excavation is sensitive to the fact there are an untold number of unknown human remains; including the remains of those long lost souls who succumbed to the Cholera Disease that ravaged the area in the early 1800s and again in the mid 1800s.  This deadly disease particularly affected those working on the canals.  The Ohio & Erie Canal extended to Circleville in Pickaway in 1831 and existed in the area of this obscure cemetery.
