BOSTON (AP) — Researchers are returning to the boyhood home of slain civil rights leader Malcolm X to resume an archaeological dig.
Archaeologist Joseph Bagley said researchers will return Monday to the home in Boston’s historically black Roxbury neighborhood.
The dig began in March but was halted after a week due to bad weather. Bagley says the team is expected to spend another week on the property.
Their efforts so far have turned up evidence of an unexpected colonial-era settlement. It also produced a stone piece possibly dating to the Native American tribes that once inhabited Boston.
