Abstract:
This paper explores potential sources for an ethical code in the archaeology of human remains. Public and professional opinions, gathered by survey questionnaires and interviews, are also considered. The survey reveals widespread public support for the archaeological investigation of ancient and historic human remains, but also a widespread desire that these should be reburied and not curated in museums. Some fundamental ethical principles are proposed as a basis for decision making on this and other questions. The broad implications of these principles for Irish archaeology are explored. Finally a series of appendices gives transepts, extracts or summaries of several existing codes of ethics developed by various organisations or individuals in Britain and the USA.
