Representations on Canewdon Church Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan - Historical Development
COMMENT Mr V Newby
Page 8 - 5.16 I dispute some of the comments made in this paragraph. I was present when the human remains were unearthed and all that was present were a skull and part of one shoulder. How the archaeologists can make the assumption that this was a wealthy individual probably buried in the 18th Century I have no idea. No pieces of a decorated coffin were found and no attempt was made to date the human remains which were buried with due ceremony in the churchyard shortly after discovery. I commented on these inaccuracies when I saw the first draft but I note that they are still included.
