I hope the tunneling doesn't sever any ley lines.  It could have severe consequences.

Careful with all that construction.  Demons dwell there.  And banshees live there.  It's a magic place, children dance there to the pipes of pan.  Won't someone think of the children?

DON.MAC: When they do dig around there, they find stuff and it is often very deep.  The tunnel isn't going to be very deep and it will be too close to the active area which seems to grow every time someone starts looking at the outer edges.


And what's really lost, that we haven't found before? Are we going to find pieces of Excalibur, or more pieces of flint? I'm all for a reasonable amount of preservation and understanding of history but you can't turn the whole country into a museum, and Neolithic history is hard to piece together because of the lack of anything written.

I get the point that there could be artifacts underground, but we have the technology to look before we dig...it's certainly possible to use underground imaging devices or just excavate the entire path beforehand and look for anything that might be of interest.

What tehcnology would that be? Tunnel Boring Machines work deeper than the ground penetrating radar work and some of the stuff in that area is quite deep.

The only reason to do this project the way it is being done is political grift.
