Funerary rituals show us what people thought about mortality, how they felt about loss, what they believed came next. From the deviant burials of the Romans to mapping changing religious beliefs against the tombs of the Anglo-Saxons, from Thomas Becket to the Archers of the Mary Rose, Buried provides an alternative history to modern Britain. Using both archaeological finds and cutting-edge DNA research, Professor Alice Roberts sheds fresh light on how people lived by examining how they died.
