More human remains unearthed at Victoria’s Pioneer Square

City of Victoria officials have confirmed the resulting archeological work will delay park upgrades

Ongoing work at Pioneer Square Park has unearthed human remains in four areas of the park, and City of Victoria officials have confirmed the resulting archeological work will delay park upgrades.

“Human remains have been removed and are now under care under the care of the on-site archeologist,” said Katie Hamilton, the city’s communications director. “They will be re-buried on-site under the direction of the archeologist.”

The extent of the delay to the $700,000 park overhaul hasn’t yet been determined by staff, she added.
