Blimey!

Well, I guess it may not be a popular decision in some quarters, but fair play to EH for not mucking about!

I'm surprised, I thought there would be some sort of compromise but as they say in their statement it is the decision that is most easily reversible. Perhaps a precedent has been set for any future excavations and the example of William Cunnington could be followed. Albeit 200 years ago, after excavating some amazing gold artefacts from the Bush Barrow near Stonehenge the chieftain they were buried with was left in the barrow. tjj Posted by tjj
