After breaking through two feet of concrete, we found another two feet of earth and now more concrete that seems to be alot thicker than the previous two feet. What is the best way to dig through several feet of concrete?, without electricity mind u or Pneumatics!!!. The two feet alone took over ten days to dig out.

Just continue breaking it. Use sledge hammer, big chisels. If that area has no water with good ventilation, you can use a concrete breaker chemical.

i really wish we took pictures of the bones we found between the layers of cement. I found out about the remains a week after they dug it up and reburied said person again.  Is it wise to disturb said bones a second time for some pics.
