Publisher's Description

Since the end of the last Ice Age, ten thousand or so years ago, over the period which we know as 'History', about one hundred billion people have died. Seventy million people died last year, six hundred thousand of them in the U.K. Death is on the one hand an ordinary, inevitable, everyday, predictable, mundane event. It has to be budgeted for, decisions made, and relations between the living reorganized. Half of the essays deal with this aspect of death. On the other hand, humans have always sought to transcend the mundaneness of death in burial rituals and memorials. The later essays trace the importance of the business of 'Remembrance' from early human beings, through the Icelandic Sagas to the twentieth century. A fascinating volume, with a wide general as well as academic appeal.
