This volume brings together early career scholars working on funerary customs in Greece from the Early Iron Age to the Roman period. Papers present various thematic and interdisciplinary analysis in which funerary contexts provide insights on individuals, social groups and communities.
‘The essays differ greatly in length, outlook and scope, but as a whole, the volume provides an engaging study of much of the recent work done on the subject of Greek death und burial, and a contextual analysis of different aspects of mortuary practices. Without doubt, its interdisciplinary approach marks one of the most valuable aspects of the publication, which constitutes a necessary update for many topics in the field and is especially useful for a specialist audience.’ – Annarita Doronzio (2022): sehepunkte 22 (2022), Nr. 4
