Yes very interesting. About 3 years ago now I put forward the idea that the WKLB was more a house for the living than the dead and nearly got laughed off the forum.

I’ve found the thread. Can’t see anything to support your claim.
Could you show us where you were ‘nearly laughed off the forum’?

Haaaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Me rude? Take a good look at yourself mate. You come back on this forum it seems with one aim...to cause trouble. You zero in on newbies and humiliate them (David on this occasion) and drive them away. How rude is that! You obviously have what is obviously an agenda in place.
For someone who contributes nothing in the way of reports and doesn't even offer up his Profile but freely gives out advise to others even though you haven't even carried out the basics and field-walked (your admission) yet had the audacity to give Spencer a lecture telling him to read more books and try field-walking is laughable. He knows more than you probably ever will.
I felt a tad sorry for you when you finally revealed you had done nothing other than visit sites and was going to invite you onto one of our (TimeSeekers) digs to gain some experience, but after your latest outburst that just isn't going to happen.
You read my WKLB comment as it was this forum I was referring to so went out of your way to try and humiliate me - not for the first time, just like you did with tsc, but I was referring to an archaeological forum that you wouldn't have even heard off as your knowledge is so poor. No it wasn't the Portal, I was winding you up there LOL.
You are obviously a troll so suggest you clear off and offend others elsewhere as you've been rumbled here. Off you go then and come back tsc - a real researcher!

I was interested to see your idea and thread resurrected this morning. There is some useful discussion there.
I've read the above article a couple of times and I know the Cat's Brain excavation has caused a lot of excitement in the Wiltshire area. However, unlike WKLB - there is very little left and no human remains. As tsc pointed out in the Wirral thread, OS maps often show long barrows where there is no visible sign of one because they have long since been ploughed out along with their long dead occupants - or cremated remains?. There is a long barrow shown on the OS map between Beckhampton and Devizes but I've never been able to spot it (lots of round barrows). As pointed out in your other thread, it seems quite reasonable that the living should keep the dead close by. How many of us live near cemeteries today for example - I do for one.
