Funerary rituals show us what people thought about mortality, how they felt about loss, and what they believed came next. Taking in Roman cremations and graveside feasts, deviant burials with heads rearranged, richly furnished Anglo-Saxon graves and the first Christian burial grounds in Wales, Buried provides an alternative history of the first millennium in Britain. 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.
