Bones found equivalent to two skeletons 

Eyewitness NewsNEW YORK -- Archaeologists testing soil for new utility lines have found several dozen human bones in Greenwich Village's historic Washington Square Park, the city Parks Department says.
The bones - the equivalent of two skeletons - were uncovered on Monday near a men's restroom at the south end of the park, the department said Tuesday.
It was not the first such discovery in the park, a centerpiece of Greenwich Village that was built in the early 19th century atop a potter's field and former parade ground. Bones also were found during at least one of three previous excavations, the agency said.
The bones, that were found without any accompanying coffin, will be analyzed by a forensic archaeologist and reburied respectfully, the department said. It appeared the bones had been moved from their original burial site many times over the years as the area was transformed into an urban plaza.
