Archaeology, Death Positivity and Public Engagement

Like Sex, Death often gets a bad rap on Social Media. I notice how rarely followers look at Persephone’s Realm on my blog. Yet death is part of life and I refuse to avoid or remove the pages which relate to my own interest in the matter.
Persephone’s Realm features links and material relating to Death, Environmental Burial Practices, Mourning,  Dealing with Animal Deaths and Art and Death.
This reblogged post considers the work of archaeology and death.

Robyn Lacy entered the field of Archaeology with vague ideas of how she wanted to proceed. Every one of which got tossed out the window after a trip to Ireland, surveying rural Catholic and Anglican cemeteries and churchyards. Robyn hasn’t swayed from burial-related study since.
