You can't find a better expert on human death and burial than Prof Mike Parker Pearson in Britain. And if this is a topic you are researching then look no further. Because everything you need is right in Pearson's comprehensive study of human death and burial in archaeology. I don't really have any criticism to offer, as I am not interested in finding points of criticism. I am a student, and my current interest is merely to start learning everything I can about what archaeologists have discovered and what they can say about those discoveries. And this book has been an immense resource in that study. I'm sure someday there will be another revised edition, because this is a massive area of study which appears to make new discoveries each year. Which is extremely exciting. At least, for me it is.

This is the standard text for mortuary archaeology. Parker-Pearson has now moved to UCL and has become ever more prominent in the field. I suppose that this could do with some updating with spectacular recent finds but it still the best book of its kind currently available.
