Description :


The definitive reference on the anthropology of death and dying, expanded with new contributions covering everything from animal mourning to mortuary cannibalism Few subjects stir the imagination more than the study of how people across cultures deal with death and dying. This expanded second edition of the internationally bestselling Death, Mourning, and Burial offers cross-cultural readings that span the period from dying to afterlife, considering approaches to this transition as a social process and exploring the great variations of cultural responses to death. Exploring new content including organ transplantation, institutionalized care for the dying, HIV-AIDs, animal mourning, and biotechnology, this text retains classic readings from the first edition, and is enhanced by sixteen new articles and two new sections which provide increased breadth and depth for readers. Death, Mourning, and Burial, Second Edition is divided into eight parts reflecting the social trajectory of death: conceptualizations of death; death, dying, and care; grief and mourning; mortuary rituals; and remembrance and regeneration. Sections are introduced through foundational texts which provide the ideal introduction to this diverse field. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with issues of death and dying, as well as violence, terrorism, war, state terror, organ theft, and mortuary rituals. A thoroughly revised edition of this classic anthology featuring twenty-three new articles, two new sections, and three reformulated sections Updated to include current topics, including organ transplantation, institutionalized care for the dying, HIV-AIDs, animal mourning, and biotechnology Must reading for anyone concerned with issues of death and dying, as well as violence, terrorism, war, state terror, organ theft, and mortuary rituals Serves as a text for anthropology classes and provides a genuinely cross-cultural perspective to all those studying death and dying

'It is one of the most remarkable aspects of Viking Age England that... there are very few Viking grave" - Richards (2000). This study, by examining all the evidence for Viking settlement, and by looking at burial practices within the entire English social milieu aims to understand why this might be. For comparative purposes it also looks at evidence for burial practices in Viking Age Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man.

This practical volume focuses on the study of historic burial ground monuments but also covers some below ground archaeology, as some projects will involve the study of both. It will be an incomparable source for academic archaeologists, cultural resource and heritage management archaeologists, government heritage agencies, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students of archaeology focused on the historic or post-medieval period, as well as forensic researchers and anthropologists.

Description :


This is an account of Garstang's excavations at the necropolis of Beni Hassan during 1902-04. Finding many intact burials of court officials with the original elaborate furniture of the tomb in their original positions, Garstang was able to undertake a meticulous description of all details of the interments including funeral rites and emblems, clothing and adornment of the person, and arts and crafts used in the burial. The work is particularly notable for the light it throws on the daily lives and deaths of men and women of the middle classes in ancient Egypt.

Description :


BURIAL is a Fortran 77 computer program that calculates and draws the burial history curves of stratigraphic sections. It calculates inferred thermal maturity for a stratigraphic section over the course of its burial history and can post the value of the associated inferred thermal maturity parameter on the burial history diagram. The data thus represented can then be used in the evaluation of potential petroleum source rocks. Other information, such as the decompacted thicknesses of stratigraphic units and the thermal structure of rock sections through time can be used in paleographic analyses and petrological studies. This report describes stratigraphic analysis and the burial history model; the thermal environment of burial; and the calculation of the inferred thermal maturity of sediments. It also gives a sample calculation.
