were surprised to see a human skeleton emerge from the ground.
He lost his head to the backhoe, but his hands and feet had already been lost when he went in the ground, which makes me wonder if he had been gnawed by dogs.
The promotion of battlefields as tourist spots is a new thing in Europe. European history buffs have long been intensely jealous of the wonderful job the US has done preserving the battlegrounds of our Civil War; I have been told by three different Europeans that their countries have "nothing like" the battlefield parks of Gettysburg, Antietam, and Manassas. There has been a museum at Waterloo for some years now, and a tour. I guess the construction of this car park means the Belgians are gearing up for a big effort to promote the 200th anniversary of the battle in 2015.
