Thanks Lensmeister for this link.
Whilst I'm always keen to see archeological digs going on to unearth our early history HS2 is quite another matter!
I also enjoyed the links within the link, if that makes sense, especially reading about Kensal Green where my 2x gt grandmother is buried, yet to be visited.
 When I first discovered her burial I was most intrigued to find the person listed directly after her was Rev Baden Powell, the father of the Scout movement founder.
I did wonder how my 2x gt grandmother was buried in such a prestigious cemetery when, from what I've gathered so far, she appears to be just an ordinary soul of little note!

Yep it's a good read.

I have recently found on of my Hugkulstones maybe buried in Brompton !!!  :o

I thought others might like the read too.

I have commented that Brookwood wasn't one of the Magnificent Seven.

Good morning.
Just not sure if this is the right thread or not.
Has anyone been watching The Big Dig with Alice Roberts? We are finding it fascinating TV.
I'd be interested to hear other viewers in-put.

I've been watching it, and several similar programmes, but last evening I got round to watching the "Bone Detectives" I'd recorded - you know, where a blonde female mortuary technician nods madly as the experts all explain everything to each other - and decided not to set any more of those to record!
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

We did exactly the same, in fact we also stopped watching about 20 minutes in, it was so appalling.

By contrast 'Britain's Biggest Dig' was fascinating.

So glad it wasn't just me! I became obsessed with the woman's nodding, OH by her tattoos!

We are watching the programmes.

Interesting, yet sad that the resting places are being disturbed for a dubious transport project.

The last three words very true! What a lot of money could be redirected if the project was to be abandoned ... but "they" will say they've gone too far along the road to pull back now, of course.
