Can you tell me what are the long-term plans for human remains? Thanks – Val Bannister
The archaeological archive from Hinkley Point will eventually be deposited at Somerset Heritage Centre. The South West Heritage Trust will continue to acquire human remains where they form an integral part of an excavation archive and where they are deemed to have research value. The acquisition and care of human remains will be carried out in accordance with the South West Heritage Trust’s Policy for the Care of Human Remains (2011).
