Arrangement of bones in the largest reclamation project of a rediscovered charnel. Mentioned in the last chapter of the book. I am not sure what the present visiting status of this site actually is; when I went there, the church brought in the archeologist who was excavating the site to take me down, and we had to enter through a manhole cover in the street. Needless to say, I owe an incredible debt to the church for making these arrangements, and the work conducted on this charnel is absolutely beautiful.
