Death is the one certainty in life, yet, with the decline of religion in the West, we have become collectively reluctant to talk about it. If we want to know how we struggle today with understanding or facing up to death, then graveyards provide a starting point. Surveying many cultures and eras, Peter Longford reveals what we can learn from Neolithic mounds, medieval corpse roads, Roman catacombs, and holocaust memorials, but also the Day of the Dead, Egyptian tomb robbers, internet memorials, and even Hammer horror films.
