The Archaeology of Death

Thursdays 2pm-4pm.

Throughout human history the journey from life to whatever will happen ‘on the other side’ has been mourned or celebrated by a wide variety of rites and funeral methods, including exposure, cremation, mummification, drowning, burial and immurment. Experienced archaeologist Steve Speak leads this 10 week course exploring the ways and reasons early communities disposed of the dead and the great burial monuments of the past, including in Northumberland. Includes a field visit.

Cost: £84 (Concessions: £68)
