The excavation of a portion of Smith's Fort, Bermuda, was led by Norman Barka of the College of William and Mary during the summers of 2000 and 2001. Excavation revealed two burials located within the merlons of the Fort's upper battery. The remains of the two individuals were kept in the Bermuda Maritime Museum before they were transferred to the Institute for Historical Biology by the Museum's director, Edward C. Harris. The remains of both individuals were inventoried and cleaned with deionized water and soft brushes prior to analysis by the Institute's staff. This is the first report of their analysis.
