The New York Daily News Network quoted local officials on July 18 as saying that dozens of bodies were excavated in this "mark-free cemetery", possibly belonging to African-American prisoners who were buried between 1878 and 1910.

“So far, one of the found remains is female and the rest are male,” says archaeologist Katrina Banks Whiteley. “They range in age from 14 to 70.”

According to reports, chains and other artifacts were also found in locations near Sugar Land.

"Some of them, especially those that can be traced back to the industrial revolution, are also equipped with swivels, probably used by a group of prisoners who are locked by chains and work hard," Clarke, head of the archaeological project, said in an interview with television.

The report said that it is not clear how these prisoners died.

In 1910, the United States banned "prisoner leasing" behavior. The Washington Post said that "Prisoner Lease" is another form of slavery, according to Pulitzer Prize winner Douglas A. Blackmont. In the late 19th and 20th centuries, this system was rampant in the United States. The vast majority of prisoners who are leased are American slaves.

Clark said that a century ago, the land that the remains were discovered was regarded as "the hell on the Bruthos". At that time, the dismissed slaves were arrested by the state government and imprisoned on charges of hooliganism and theft. Afterwards, these black slave prisoners were either rented by the government to traders and forced to carry out agricultural planting, coal mining, railway construction, etc., or participate in state government projects. The construction of the Texas State House was completed by these black slave prisoners. . Between 1866 and 1912, more than 3,500 prisoners were killed in Texas.

Clark said that after the American Civil War, these imprisoned black slaves were forced to rebuild the state, but ultimately there was no decent funeral. "The 95 wills are revisiting the sky and revealing the darkest part of the history of the United States."

Experts say that there are likely to be other similar “mark-free cemeteries"
