More from Duffy’s Cut

I posted an entry about the excavations at Duffy’s Cut earlier this year.  There’s been some new discoveries from the site that hit the news this week.  It seems that evidence of violence in the form of bullet wounds and other trauma have been discovered on some of the excavated skulls.  The “official” story at the time was that the workers died of a cholera outbreak but the evidence of violence seems to disprove that.  As the project continues I’m sure there will be more information.

I've heard that the workers did contract cholera and were murdered for that reason. The railway was to be used for travelers and any suspicion of cholera would have caused a panic and the owners couldn't afford that. It all had to do with profits, of course.
