Forensic archaeology update Archaeological dig comes up empty for missing woman
An archaeological dig of a garage floor came up empty Wednesday for any evidence of a woman missing since 1954.

Police, forensic scientists and the state archaeologist sifted most of the day for clues in the disappearance of Anna Kenneway. Her family members have long suspected her husband may have had a sinister hand in her disappearance 52 years ago, especially when he poured a new garage floor of fresh concrete about the time she went missing.

Instead, experts found no evidence the soil beneath the garage was ever disturbed.

See the current issue of Archaeology magazine for an article on forensic archaeology in Spain. There are other articles in there (sub-only) worth reading this month as well.
