What is death? All living things experience death, but humans are unique as we purposefully bury our dead, often with ceremony or ritual. Why is there so much variation when it comes to the dead and how they are treated, celebrated, or feared? An anthropological perspective is used to explore these questions, to understand specifically how we define death biologically and culturally and how this definition can and does change over time.
