Waterstones Says

From Roman cremations to Christian burials, the anthropologist and author of the bestselling Ancestors explores the ways in which Ancient Britons bade farewell to their dead in an eye-opening slice of popular history.

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, Buried provides an alternative history of the first millennium in Britain. As she did with her pre-history of Britain in 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.
