Digging up the dead in the name of progress

The BBC has a story about the prospect of thousands of English graves having to be dug up and relocated, as part of the new HS2 high speed rail extension works. The piece asks why we are so squeamish about such relocations, and cites several other examples in England and overseas.

It's an interesting piece and can be read at www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18505222
