for my death & the afterlife in the ancient world class. a clear, useful introduction to greek and roman death rituals. morris' style is informal but he makes good use of serious scholarship. his analysis of a rhodesian cemetery is a good wrap-up that neatly aligns his thinking and his methods into an understandable conclusion.
