Abstract

This project examined and documented two inactive cemeteries in Millbury, Massachusetts, in collaboration with the Millbury Cemeteries Commission. Utilizing Ground Penetrating Radar, the team sought to determine the exact location of interments in the cemeteries and any free space remaining. The issue of diminishing burial space was researched as well as the individuals buried in the cemeteries. A public website with an interactive map and a database containing information about the individuals was also created.
