Cramped Quarters Photograph by Jesús Eduardo López Reyes
Between steel beams added for safety, physical anthropologist Gregory Pereira records the skeletons lying beneath a string grid in a sacrificial burial from A.D. 300. With almost a dozen people sometimes at work in the chamber, which contains less than 250 square feet (23 square meters), any movement required a choreography of arms, legs, and equipment. The amount of air that could be pumped in from the outside limited the number of people and the length of their stay. When the chamber was crowded, it quickly became hot, humid, and short of oxygen.
