This Saturday, researchers with the University of South Florida will begin digging up graves at the old Dozier School for boys.

Excavation sites will be off limits to the public and press for a year as researchers exhume remains. A USF spokesperson says researchers will work to exhume remains, identify them, return them to families if possible and re-inter the rest.

The Governor and Cabinet approved the excavations at the cabinet meeting in August.
