Public works crews unearth dozens of empty coffins, single bone at Duluth site

St. Louis County Public Works employees were looking for any evidence of human remains as part of a planned archaeological exploratory dig last week in advance of a scheduled project to widen Rice Lake Road north of Arrowhead Road in 2020.
