City Archaeologist Carl Halbirt wraps up the final day of an excavation inside a storefront on the bottom floor of 1 King Street, the downtown building housing A1A Aleworks, on Thursday, April 27, 2017, where he and a team of volunteers have identified the skeletal remains of approximately 30 individuals from the early colonial period. Halbirt has led the excavation since February, when property owner David White invited him to dig beneath the floors, which were undergoing repairs from damages sustained in Hurricane Matthew. The burial site included evidence of cremations occurring during the early colonial period in St. Augustine and gave insight into where the eastern boundary of the city’s first parish church, Nuestra Senora de Los Remedios, was located. Recovered skeletal and cremation remains are being sent off to the University of Florida for analysis, DNA testing and radiocarbon dating. Once analysis is finished, the bones will be returned to the Catholic Church for re-internment. (Christina Kelso/ The St. Augustine Record)
