A few years back there was mention l think of an Irish workhouse
burial ground being excavated, so it might be worth checking the archives.
My areas of specialisation is the archaeology of institutions (so far
workhouses and lunatic asylums) and l do have some references to burials in
American insitutions if you are looking for comparative material.
