While working on the renovation of Benjamin Franklin's London home, a construction worker found something odd: a small pit in a windowless basement room.
Inside, sticking through the dirt floor, was a human thigh bone.
Ultimately, 1,200 pieces of bone were recovered, and initial examinations revealed that the bones were the remains of 10 bodies, six of them children, and were a little more than 200 years old.
