I have noticed that the ‘results’ over the Avebury Child consultation and review are in. This is something I blogasmed about a while back and was rather disparaging of the view of CoBDO and the like.
The wonderful news is that the remains will stay at the museum and fuckwits like CoBDO will not be able to perform their am-dram bullshit over the remains.
The result and associated surveys etc are to be found here, I would recommend the survey that was carried out and the results of it; 91% of people surveyed – with a higher proportion of pagans than in the general population – said that remains should be displayed and be available for research. If this isn’t a mandate for the future to tell CoBDO and it’s ilk to piss off then I don’t know what is.
I will be at the museum this weekend coincidentally and shall make a point of visiting the remains of ‘Charlie’ and be sure to mention t one of the staff that I am glad the result that was reached, was, well, reached.
