This interesting blog – Pagan Claims on Human Remains, though it was written at an earlier date by Dr. Tiffany Jenkins came up as a Google alert on the issue of reburial and the role of the museums in displaying  ancient remains.  She gives a secular viewpoint, and some might argue with her interpretation of the multi-faceted Pagan religions that now exist, but the question asked ‘did English Heritage and the National Trust’ spend too much time and money on the consultation of  the reburial of the skeleton at Avebury Museum is a valid one, given the minority viewpoint of the Druid organisation who petitioned for reburial.
