City: Istanbul

Description: Paperback, 188 p., b/w ill., 27x19,5 cm


This book constitutes a thoroughly refereed International Workshop held in Çanakkale in 2006 and organised by two universities conjointly on funeral rites, rituals and ceremonies from Prehistory to Antiquity. The book covers a time span from mostly Bronze Age to Classical periods and examines some of the archaeological evidence while presenting and discussing individual sites on funeral practices. Scholars of history and archaeology from different countries, contribute to this volume by providing examples not only from the Troas region itself but also from neighbouring and more distant lands. Recent excavations and field surveys in the Troas and its neighbours provide additional information about the details of our ancestors’ response to the universal inevitable reality: the death.
