On-site lab work by a group of scientists can even be achieved in the course of the excavation, which is able to reportedly take weeks to months to check and decide conclusive findings.
“I hope that despite the fact that it is not going to be tomorrow and it should take us a while, I hope that now we have solutions and that I hope we are able to lend one thing to studying extra about who these people are, who’re on this unmarked mass grave that we did not learn about beforehand,” Dr. Kary Stackelbeck with the Oklahoma Archeological Survey stated, in line with NewsOn6.
Excavation work started on Tuesday at 10 am. That will probably be adopted by the group working at Oaklawn Monday via Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. till the work is completed.
