Interesting story ..

Archaeologists are discovering scores of hidden graves at the cemetery that is the final resting place of the first person to die of the bubonic plague in Australia.

"The first person in the graveyard died from smallpox in 1881," Ms Wilson said.

"The second person was an Aboriginal guy — he died of smallpox too."

The project was designed to protect headstones like the one belonging two-year-old Iole Lakeman.
