Part two of our annual roundup of unearthed news is a bit of a hodgepodge. It features identifications, very large finds, edible finds, art and letters, and some historical debunkings. And of course, we have everyone's favorite: exhumations.

A video of our own Unearthed! experience at an archaeological dig in Harvard Yard is here: Digging Archaeology at Harvard Yard.
