Spindly trees, rusted gates, crumbling stone, a solitary mourner: these things come to mind when we think of cemeteries. But not long ago, many burial grounds were lively places, with gardens and crowds of people — and for much of human history, we didn’t bury our dead at all. How did cemeteries become what they are today? Keith Eggener delves into our ever-evolving rituals for honoring the dead.

  1. In my family, there is a tradition to bathe the dead and bury them in the soil in a sitting position without a coffin. And you might be horrified to know that, a priest cuts a piece of the forehead after 1 year. We plant a tree beside them to honour them and to protect the environment. This makes the soil very fertile, we have like 20 tall and full grown trees growing there.

  2. the first burry was way older than that, son of Adam and eve when he got killed from his brother, they burried him when they saw the crow doing it.

  3. At 4:17 there is a disclaimer to be made, a human body doesnt pollute the soil at all, its what people do to the body before burying it, that is the cause of pollution, just stop pumping the body full of toxic chemicals and bury it as it was, thats the most environmentally friendly way of dealing with a corpse.

  4. Hello everyone my name is James Clark i am from U.K i’m giving a testimony on how I joined the illuminati brotherhood, I was trying to join this organization for so many years now, I was scammed by fake agent in south Africa and Nigeria, I was down i could not feed my self and my family anymore and I tried to make money by all means but all in vain, I was afraid to contact any illuminati agent because they have eat my money, one day I came across a post of someone giving a testimony thanking a man called Steven Roy for helping him to join the illuminati brotherhood, then I looked at the man’s email and the phone number that was written there, I was afraid to contact him because i was scammed a lot of times by scammers who ate my $5,000 and went away with the money then I was very confused so I decided to contact the person that was given the testimony and i called him and I communicated with him on phone calls before he started telling me his own story about when he wanted to join he told me everything to do, then I made up my mind and called the agent called Maxwell Smith and he told me everything to do and I was initiated, surprisingly I was given my benefit of being a new member of the great illuminati brotherhood I was so happy, for those of you trying to join this organization this is your opportunity for you to join CONTACT MR Maxwell Smith call (+44 752 060 8633) or WhatsApp him (+44 752 060 8633) or

  5. I have three theories:
    1. If you walk over an unmarked grave then whoever will die there feels a shiver down their back(Ik its already a superstition)
    2. If you walk over a dead ghosts' grave at night they will haunt you forever
    3. I might be a sociopath since I only wanted to watch this for the dead people :-:

  6. Sky burials, ritual cannibalism, cremation, etc, do not show less respect or care of the dead than burials in a tomb or grave.

  7. In Greece they bury the body and after 7 years they dig the bones out & put them in a box which are stored in a small house next to the church 😗✌🏽

  8. Old cemeteries in the south of Brazil. Graves of german immigrants:
