Hangman's Graveyard is an award winning docudrama that follows a team of archaeologists and forensic investigators as they unearth an old graveyard behind an abandoned Victorian prison in one of North America's largest cities. The only clues the archaeologists have to work on are a yellow-map that marks 'murderers' row', newspaper accounts on the executions and a list of 34 men who met their end on Canada's 'Death Row'.
They say that dead men tell no tales yet as each grave is opened the team discovers rich forensic evidence that offers clues to the identity of these men. Using CSI-style science blended with field archaeology, documentary and historical recreations, Hangman's Graveyard brings these men back to life and offers a fascinating glimpse into the grim world of crime and punishment from a bygone era.
