Honouring the Ancient Dead

Via the blog of OBOD Chief Philip Carr-Gomm, here’s a link to a video by the BBC on a project by a Pagan group called HAD (Honouring the Ancient Dead) that seeks to rebury ancient human remains currently stored in museum basements and such. They’re having some success.

The BBC website doesn’t seem to have a way for me to embed the video here, but here’s the link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/8530281.stm.

The video is worth watching if only for the opening few minutes, filmed at the Rollright Stones. I have to say it looks far more mystical in the misty snows than it did on the clear April day I was there in 2007! Emma Restall Orr, a Druid, makes an excellent spokesperson for the cause.

Can you imagine any of the US television networks doing something this beautiful and this respectful?
