Survey - press attitudes of excavation and reburial of human remains

Those of you who attended the “through a glass lens darkly” session of this years conference may remember Tori Park’s paper on the attitude of the press towards the excavation and reburial of human remains. Tori is conducting research on this for her PhD and would be grateful if members could complete a short survey for her. She says

Dear all,

I am currently conducting research for my PhD into newspaper coverage of the excavation and reburial of British archaeological human remains. The research is being undertaken at Newcastle University and is kindly funded by the AHRC.

Alongside an analysis of the content of a wide range of British newspapers and a survey of the general public, I also want to collect the opinions of archaeologists, osteoarchaeologists and others involved in the archaeological process.

I would be very grateful if you could help me in this by completing my short survey. It should take no longer than 5-10 minutes to complete (depending on the amount of detail you choose to provide).

I hope that the findings will be of interest to many of you and I hope to be able to present my research findings to you at forthcoming conferences.

Many thanks in advance

Tori Park”
