HAD Reburial Handbook

Our reburial handbook is intended to be a source of information and suggestions that we hope will be helpful to anyone intending to rebury human remains.  Its primary audience is archaeologists and museum professionals who have made the decision to rebury, or are thinking about reburying, but need practical information on how to go about it.  As such, this handbook picks up where other guides, such as the Museums Association Disposal Toolkit, stop in their advice.  In particular, it provides advice on ways of minimising the costs of reburial and gives contact information for undertakers and burial grounds willing to support reburial projects. The focus of this handbook is on reburial and, necessarily, omits detailed discussion of alternative treatments of ancient human remains that may be covered elsewhere.
