The Archaeology of Death and Burial: Theoretical Perspectives


This lecture will offer a general overview of some of the most useful
aspects of the ‘Archaeology of Death’ for gaining insights into past
societies from prehistory to the current age. Topics include formal versus
informal burial, genetic and palaeopathological research, cemetery location
and plans, status, gender, community and dress.

The study of death and burial may seem a macabre hobby, suitable for
archaeologists who like to turn over the rubbish dumps of dead people, but
in fact the burial context is an ideal way to approach many otherwise hidden
aspects of the living. The passing away of a community and family member is
an opportunity to represent their roles and status, while the location of
cemeteries expresses concepts of social space and points of access to the
supernatural world. The body itself, where preserved, contains evidence
amenable to modern archaeological science for determining the lifestyle,
origin and even ethnicity of the deceased. Finally the often sealed context
of the grave provides a closed time-capsule embodying concepts from a
particular time and place, which can fruitfully be brought into comparison
with earlier and later expressions of society to recognized trends and
patterns in the organisation of past human communities.
