The Bone Collectors

Spotted today on the Beacon Park Golf Course new 9 hole junior course so beautifully created from landfill by Serco and Oakland Golf and Leisure Ltd is this animal bone assemblage bones, also known as a carcass. As we all know, animal bone assemblages have great potential to inform archaeological interpretations. Animal bone assemblages are found on sites of all cultural traditions, such as quality golf courses.

Could these bones have been buried among the rubble and as the course is gradually washed away by rain become exposed to the elements? In which case how many other carcasses could be buried there. Given time who knows what will be exposed there?


  1. What an absolute bloody disgrace.
