Death is as old as life itself, and the rituals accompanying it are about as old, too. For thousands of years, cultures around the world have ritualized death as a way of understanding it. Whether it was preserving a body for eternity or disposing of it completely to set the soul free, a culture's funerary customs reveal much about how its people viewed life and death. This text provides an age-appropriate examination of death rituals from cultures both ancient and modern. Captivating sidebars, fact boxes, a graphic organizer, and engaging visuals will encourage readers to look to the past to see how we handle death today.
