Strange rumour

It has just been brought to my attention that there is a rumour going round that PfA and HAD are joining forces, with PfA becoming part of HAD.

Certainly this has been suggested to me by several members of HAD, but I have always said no, and will continue to say no.  I still haven't been HAD.

Pagans for Archaeology is an independent body representing those who are opposed to reburial and who support archaeology and museums. Its position is therefore incompatible with HAD's view, which is that reburial is one of a range of options (and presumably the preferred option) for dealing with ancient human remains.

Reburial is not "a preferred" for pressure group HAD just one of a range - which seem reasonable to me and indeed many museums and archaeologists, especially if the remains are unprovenanced and of no further scientific use, as at Norwich Museum . . .
