It was prime construction season, and PennDOT had contracts out. Fifty to 75 archaeologists worked 10-hour days, six days a week, for four months carefully unearthing remains — row after row of Swiss and German congregants buried in 727 graves from 1833 to 1861.
The remains and artifacts were reburied under one marker in a 2003 ceremony in Troy Hill’s Voegtly Evangelical Cemetery. In the years before that, the Smithsonian Institution did an analysis of the bones for PennDOT.

It’s a serious tragedy for survival horror fans that the Gamecube’s exceptional game, Eternal Darkness, never received a sequel or some form of modern remaster. One of the most groundbreaking concepts in Eternal Darkness is the use of sanity effects, which warp the player’s perception of in-game effects. These sanity effects go to some extreme lengths, including making the player think that their volume is increased, their video output has disconnected, or even that all of their save game data is about to be erased. It’s an excellent way to add stress to the player’s tense experience.
Thanks Interwebs 🙏 ♥️
