"If you try and get rid of our own conception of the ghoulishness of
having granny under the platform or a new baby under the floor, you
can think about things like memory, sentimentality, etc. Maybe it
just seemed right to leave granny under where she used to sleep, or
to allow your baby, who had never experienced much of life, to share
in the daily routines passively, underneath the space in which he or
she would have grown up."
-Duncan Garrow, excavator, 1999
