Dig uncovers burial ground

St. Louis Cathedral recently finished their own historical archaeological dig, finding among other things, a flower market and toys. Now, a storied name in French Quarter history has his own dig discoveries: Vincent Marcello wanted a pool in his backyard on Rampart and has found some older “residents” back there, probably from the time the area was St. Peter Cemetery in the 1700s.. Let’s hope he doesn’t want back rent…
