Students in Stark County try to find what's beneath the Klinefelter Cemetery

GREEN, OH (WOIO) - University of Akron and Green High School students are trying to find out what's beneath the Klinefelter Cemetery.

Students are using a drone, magnetic gradiometers and electrical resistivity meters to find out what is beneath the landmark in the city of Green that dates back to the 19th Century.

An Akron professor made sure students used the geophysical technology that allowed identification and location of burial pits and metal artifacts such as coffin nails and other hardware.
