The above will come as news to many people, not least those in the 
archaeological line who often rely on the materials found in middens in 
their studies of the past. A midden was (and is) another name for a heap 
of rubbish, some of which were and are entirely above-ground and others 
in holes in the ground (i.e. landfill). The news that incineration was 
easier and/or cheaper had obviously not reached our ancestors.
