Smithsonian forensic anthropologist Douglas Owsley prepares to enter and excavate the 1835 Causten vault in search of clues about what life was like for city dwellers in 19th-century Washington, D.C. On June 11, ancestors of the Shriver family were reinterred in Historic Congressional Cemetery's restored Causten vault, a historic burial site analyzed by Owsley and a team of researchers.
