Product description

Review

"A first-class study of British attitudes to death and dying from the Middle Ages to the 20th century... A fascinating work of social history that is both scholarly and accessible to general readers" (Financial Times)

"Watkins has a gift for conveying a feeling of place, and is good at conjuring up the dead, lifting the veil so that we can have a peek into the grave and beyond" (Good Book Guide)

"Outstanding ... This may be a book about death but, paradoxically, it is one filled with intelligence and life" (Sunday Times)

"Superbly written, shows how the meaning of life is still everywhere connected to what it means to die" (Ian Thomson Financial Times)

"A sensitive and fascinating history of an "undiscovered country" which, in many ways, mirrors the story of Britain" (John Gallagher Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description

A fascinating history of the changing – and enduring – beliefs about death, and what lies beyond.
