Landfill could disguise graves: archaeologist
The archaeologist at the centre of the dispute over the findings of land surveys on the site of the Boggo Road Busway says there were "anomalies" between the introduced clays from "fill" and the "underlaying basal clays".

In a statement from his report into the results of the survey, the archaeologist, Dr Jon Prangnell from the University of Queensland, says "no graves or human remains were found".

However, he suggested to students at the university in February that landfill cover prevented graves from being detected during ground penetrating radar surveys.
