The Road of Bones

The Road of Bones

Kolyma Highway is a more than 1200-mile-long modern road in Russia which an estimated quarter of a million people died building. Because of permafrost, internment into the fabric of the road was deemed more practical than burying the bodies in new holes, resulting in the nickname “The Road of Bones.”
