Alumna Anna Dhody recovered over 70 coffins

“The excavation is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Anna Dhody, Curator of the The Mütter Museum and Director of The Mütter Institute. “We now have months, perhaps years of work and research ahead of us. The remains will need to be cleaned and an inventory conducted before we will know the final number of individuals removed from the site. The Mütter Institute hopes to collaborate with additional institutions and researchers in order to shed more light on the history of the parishioners of the First Baptist Church.”
