Grave Burrows

This is a labourer's grave, in a labourer's graveyard, in the Suurveld. The earth is softer where graves have been dug, so that burrowing animals prefer graves. Several graves in this graveyard have such burrows. OBSERVATION: Often, a sheet of corrugated iron is placed on top of the coffin, to prevent burrowing animals from accessing it. Occasionally that may include humans.
