Remains of 4 early colonial leaders discovered at Jamestown

Archaeologists have uncovered human remains of four of the earliest leaders of the English colony that became America under the floor of a Jamestown church.

The four leaders have been buried for more than 400 years near the altar of what was America's first Protestant church in Jamestown, Virginia.

Researchers were stunned to find one of the, identified as Capt. Gabriel Archer, a vociferous critic and rival of Captain John Smith, was buried with Catholic artefacts, leading to claims he was part of a secret Catholic cell or a Spanish spy.

I don't know. Why did they have to disturb these graves? It seems like a bad omen to me. Exhuming(sp?) the first Anglo settlers on our continent. I don't think this is a good move.
