I'm a little bit surprised that anyone is "shocked" that people who dig for relics, ect... might encounter human remains. Of course you'll find human remains!
And then to say "they should contact experienced/qualified people to dig" - so having a degree makes it okay to dig up the dead?? But being an amature, like Darwin, Edison, ect... - they have no right to engage in scientific exploration???
Maybe some of these people profited from their searches - GOOD FOR THEM!!! If they want to go out there and search old battlefields and historical sites, and they find antiques, relics, or other items of interest - GOOD FOR THEM!!!
I'm sure that none of us would respect them if they just digged up bodies and then dumped the bones behind a tree - but as long as they bury any remains the find -then fine... Hell, people ( scientists w/ degrees ) dig up bodies all the time and take the bones to their office to look at some more - and if they find some nice rings and such - they get bigger grants from their universities, ect... WHATS THE DIFFERENCE!!!???
I've explored the SW and have found Native American sites, ect... I've encountered remains and have not disturbed them - but I'm sure if I found something phenomenal in them, I would and then put the remains back the way they were...
There is nothing immoral about scientific exploration performed in a moral fashion - either professional or amature - and nothing that that lady put on her site looked anything other than moral...
anyway - IMHO
