When Gordon's head was unwrapped at the Mahdi's feet, he ordered the head transfixed between the branches of a tree "...where all who passed it could look in disdain, children could throw stones at it and the hawks of the desert could sweep and circle above."  Gordon's body was desecrated and thrown down a well.  After the reconquest of the Sudan, in 1898, several attempts were made to locate Gordon's remains, but in vain.
