Petition to save human remains

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to reject utterly any suggestion that remains found in Stonehenge should be reburied and left to decay.
The recent history of this nation is founded upon scientific principles. Science advances continually because of a continual influx of new evidence and information. To allow these remains to be reburied would result in a vast loss of potential evidence as new techniques as yet undeveloped could never be used on these valuable specimens. We must of course be respectful and treat human remains as well as possible, but not if this is at the cost of science, history and education.
