Cemeteries + Graveyards
Exhumed grave in Greece. Due to lack of space, this is standard practice. To make room for newly deceased, the bodies are exhumed after 3 years and the bones placed in an ossuary with the bones of other members of the family, or, if there is no such box, they are simply buried in another part of the plot, perhaps even underneath one of the coffins.
A solitary casket remained in a corner of the pitch black vault. It was no ordinary casket however; it was made of steel, and had eighteen or so clamps on the lid. It appeared to be a special container for bodies that were to be stored for a long period of time, or perhaps infected with a contagious disease - it had the ability to be sealed without contaminating the vault air, and was impervious to seepage.
