An account of the discovery of long forgotten burial grounds in central Cape Town, exposed and excavated as a result of urban growth. "It falls to biologists, archaeologists, archivists, and civic authorities to retrieve and interpret the remains, and it becomes a burden taken on by their putative descendants to reclaim and control the bones themselves." from the preface by Carmel Schrire.
