This undergraduate seminar will explore mortuary archaeology in the Aegean and Greek worlds from the prehistoric to historic periods. We will consider the mortuary environment; grave architecture; burial traditions and rituals including the treatment of the body, the depositional circumstances/parameters, and the grave gifts/offerings; and the reconstruction of attitudes and beliefs about death, mourning, identity, and memory as well as the reflection/reconstruction of life through the mortuary record.
