Let Ancestors Rest in Peace

The spirit of Burke and Hare is being invoked by a local councillor in an attempt to preserve Victorian burial chambers under threat from archaeological excavation.  The interesting aspect of this case is that living relatives of those buried are concerned and are campaigning to prevent removal and scientific analysis of the remains in the now demolished chapel.

HAD can completely sympathise with the current local community and their concern in this case but would like everyone to consider – why should the treatment of our ancient ancestors ever be any different?
