In the US, the remains of 7,000 people are found on the campus of the medical center at the University of Mississippi.
The total area of graves is about 8 hectares. Such a number of deaths is due to the fact that in the XIX – XX centuries a psychiatric hospital was located on this territory. Patients were buried there after death.
To rebury each body, the authorities will have to spend $ 21 million.
As an alternative, it is proposed to conduct exhumation by the University. According to preliminary calculations, it will cost 400 thousand dollars a year for the next eight years.
Planned expenses include the construction of a memorial and a laboratory, where students can study the remains of deceased and surviving things.
