The Exhumer
#1
On sunday the 19th Channel 4 did a programme at 7pm about Peter Mitchell, whose company engage in graveyard clearances. I wonder how many people saw it, and what do folks think about such work? after all, their goal is not for the study of the bodies contained in cemetaries but just to remove them prior to development.

OK. Missed the programme, but is this the same Peter Mitchell who used to be the 'brains' behind Necropolis Ltd. And wrote the 'definitive' book on burial law. And was it the same programme that Channel 4 showed once before on the activites of that company....

....In either case my comments on the man, on the company and on some of the 'business practices' of him and associates are unprintable and very definitely against both the BAJR AUP and probably the rules of common decency....

Kevin, your comments would be most welcome, if you could couch them in terms acceptable to the AUP I'm sure BAJRites would like to read them.

Understood Kevin, sometimes experience is so raw that comment can be detrimental to accurate reporting. There is however an alternative, rumour has it that the digger will shortly reappear, if you'd like to express your opinions when that happy day occurs then feel free.

And yes I have indeed been contacted by a person who has asked if BAJR would help the Digger again. I have agreed, with the usual caveat that I don't have to agree with what they do, and that content should be based evidence rather than rumour. I will be setting up a site for them, and will help in the quarterly layout of a Digger digest - to print out. It seems sensible that the news comes out as it happens, rather than later.

I was most shocked by the Luxor graveyard move. where amazing tombs with inscriptions and personality were (seemingly) broken up and the new graveyard (somewhere in the desert) was a rows of spindly crosses with names. I thought they would have moved the memorial stones as well. - One that I would say must belong to an archaeologist, was

well it is now.!
