Description

A Thought-Provoking Work Of Archaeological Detection - Come As Close As You Can Get To Solving The Riddles Of The Dead, Whilst Staying This Side Of The Grave The Archaeology Of The Afterlife Delves Into Some Fascinating Enigmas And, In An Attempt To Find Convincing Answers, Draws Upon The Archaeological Investigation Of Bodies And Tombs Worldwide. Ranging Across Cultures, The Book Casts New Light On The Beliefs, Rituals, Hopes And Fears Of Many Different Peoples - From The Germanic And Celtic Warrior Peoples Of Northern Europe To The Imperial Dynasties Of Ancient China. Why Were Hundreds Of Bodies, Apparently The Victims Of Violent Deaths, Deposited In Bogs Across Northern Europe At The Start Of The Christian Era? What Exciting Possibilities Were Opened Up When Archaeologists Exhumed The Bodies Of Pharaoh Ramses II, Of The Long-Lived Mayan Ruler Pacal, And Of Philip Of Macedon, Father Of Alexander The Great? New Historical Theories, New Discoveries, And New Advances In Forensic Archaeology Have Provided Us With Fresh Insights Into The Domain Of The Dead: The Rituals That Ancient Societies Performed On Burial Of Their Dead, And The Extraordinary Architectural Legacies.
