what do you think? would you want great-great-grandma dug up to plant cousin louey?

Before NAGPRA (not been a part of a project where remains were unearthed since then), our crews tended to deepen remains when leaving in situ was not an option, and relocation just seemed wrong.
Perchance time to ponder the business of burials in the modern era?

okay, for us it is cremation, so lack of space doesn't pose a "threat" ;D

But if you think about it people have been moving the dead for centuaries- any of you ever read or seen Hamlet? What do you think the Clown is doing with all those bones when he's digging Ophelias grive "alas poor Yorick I knew thee well" there's a reason that guy's holding a skull ya'know.
Its common practice to reuse burial space.
The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.Sonnet XCIVBut if that flower with base infection meet,The basest weed outbraves his dignity:For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds
