A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

‘Tender, fascinating … Lucid and illuminating’&&&160;Robert Macfarlane


Funerary rituals show us what people thought about mortality; how they felt about loss; what they believed came next. From Roman cremations and graveside feasts, to deviant burials with heads rearranged, from richly furnished Anglo Saxon graves to the first Christian burial grounds in Wales,&&&160;Buried&&&160;provides an alternative history of the first millennium in Britain. As she did with her pre-history of Britain in&&&160;Ancestors, Professor Alice Roberts combines archaeological finds with cutting-edge DNA research and written history to shed fresh light on how people lived: by examining the stories of the dead.
