Dawn Cobb is a Biological Archaeologist, and Archaeological Research Associate at the Illinois State Museum. We met at the ISM's Research and Collections Center in Springfield Illinois, where we discussed the list of remains from the 1998 Lincoln Park excavation for the Chicago History Museum's parking garage. The facility in Springfield holds the skeletal remains of 81 bodies from the Chicago City Cemetery.
During the excavation of this parking facility, the skeletal remains of eighty-one individuals were removed from the park grounds.
The remains were sent to Springfield, Illinois, where they are now artifacts in the collection of the Illinois State Museum.
