145 graves found under the school in Florida

It reveals the radar images, which have been taken of the soil around and under the King High School in the american city.

"It seems to be the chests or cavities in the soil from the coffins that have rotted away over time," said the school's superintendent, Jeff Eakins, at a press conference Wednesday.

the first campaign belongs to, according to the Tampa Bay Times, a cemetery by the name of Ridgewood Cemetery, where - mainly - poor african-american citizens, was buried in the middle of the twentieth century.

Ridgewood cemetery where more than 250 people - hence the up to 70 children - is buried, was taken into use in 1942. The reason, as the cemetery lay in, was sold to a private company just 15 years later - in 1957.

"We want to ensure that people who are buried here are honoured," said the headmistress at the press conference on Wednesday.

It should come as no surprise that the ground around the school saves on anything other than earthworms. In the deed, which the school district received at the time of purchase, it appeared that there was a cemetery on the site. The lap is, however, supposedly been lost in the course of the race.
