Description : Children, Death and Burials assembles a panorama of studies with a focus on juvenile burials; the 16 papers have a wide geographic and temporal breadth and represent a range of methodological approaches. All have a similar objective in mind, however, namely to understand how children were treated in death by different cultures in the past; to gain insights concerning the roles of children of different ages in their respective societies and to find evidence of the nature of past adult–child relationships and interactions across the life course. The contextualisation and integration of the data collected, both in the field and in the laboratory, enables more nuanced understandings to be gained in relation to the experiences of the young in the past. A broad range of issues are addressed within the volume, including the inclusion/exclusion of children in particular burial environments and the impact of age in relation to the place of children in society. Child burials clearly embody identity and ‘the domestic child’, ‘the vulnerable child’, ‘the high status child’, ‘the cherished child’, ‘the potential child’, ‘the ritual child’ and the ‘political child’, and combinations thereof, are evident throughout the narratives. Investigation of the burial practices afforded to children is pivotal to enlightenment in relation to key facets of past life, including the emotional responses shown towards children during life and in death, as well as an understanding of their place within the social strata and ritual activities of their societies. An important new collection of papers by leading researchers in funerary archaeology, examining the particular treatment of juvenile burials in the past. In particular focuses on the expression of varying status and identity of children in the funerary archaeological record as a key to understanding the place of children in different societies.

Description : Drawing from primary research studies in archaeology, historical analysis, literature, and art this interdisciplinary look at the history of child funerary practices and other vehicles of parental mourning is the only book of its kind. The purpose of this work is to investigate the ways in which funerary behaviors and grieving differ between cultures and across time; from prehistory to modern history. Philippe Aries, the French childhood historian, argued that children were rarely mourned upon their deaths as child death was a frequent and expected event, especially in the Middle Ages. This book draws upon archaeological reports, secondary data analysis, and analysis of literature, photography and artwork to refute, and in some cases support, Aries's claim. Organized in two parts, Part One begins with a chapter on the causes of childhood mortality and the steps taken to prevent it, followed by chapters on prehistory, ancient civilizations, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and the early modern and late modern eras. The chapters in Part Two discuss indicators of parental concern at a child's death: naming practices, replacement strategy, baptism, consolation literature, and artwork. Students who focus on the psychological aspects of death, funeral practices, and childhood histories will find this book a useful and comprehensive tool for examining how children have been mourned since prehistory.

Description : The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of Death and Burial reviews the current state of mortuary archaeology and its practice, highlighting its often contentious place in the modern socio-politics of archaeology. It contains forty-four chapters which focus on the history of the discipline and its current scientific techniques and methods. Written by leading, international scholars in the field, it derives its examples and case studies from a wide range of time periods, such as the middle palaeolithic to the twentieth century, and geographical areas which include Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Combining up-to-date knowledge of relevant archaeological research with critical assessments of the theme and an evaluation of future research trajectories, it draws attention to the social, symbolic, and theoretical aspects of interpreting mortuary archaeology. The volume is well-illustrated with maps, plans, photographs, and illustrations and is ideally suited for students and researchers.

Description : It's hard to talk to children and teens about death and dying, particularly when someone they love has died or might die soon. Our instinct as caring adults may be to shelter them from painful truths. Yet as Dr. Wolfelt emphasizes, what kids need most is our honesty and our loving presence. This practical and compassionate handbook includes dozens of suggested phrases to use with preschoolers, school-agers, and teenagers as you explain death in general or the death of a parent, a sibling, a grandparent, or a pet. Other chapters include possible words and ideas to draw on when you are talking to kids about a death by suicide, homicide, or terminal illness. At times grown-ups must also have very difficult conversations with dying children; this book offers guidance. A final chapter discusses how to talk with kids about funerals, burial, and cremation.

Description : Some would argue that the teacher's job is to teach, and that hasn't changed. What has expanded is the teacher's role (and, often, by default, increasing responsibility) to meet students in the events we call life. This helpful resource addresses many themes, including: the physical processes which occur during and after death, reasons for illness, sudden death, or suicide, what actually happens to the dead body, what happens at funerals. There are strategies for speaking and listening, insights into the words and questions, and what is behind them, from children, and staying aware of their own needs and issues.' - Resources Hotline (The World Pastoral Centre) 'This is an interesting book that, if used creatively, can provide teachers with useful information about death either as general knowledge or for lesson preparation. It certainly contains a range of death-related information in a form that it would be hard to find elsewhere.' - International Journal of Children's Spirituality 'Impressively focused, but full of useful information. It adds to the literature on teaching about death in interesting ways, because it is so direct and clear in its approach to the topic.' - Morality 'This book goes a long way to addressing these anxieties by offering a clear and accessible introduction to the subject with basic information about the facts of death, funerals and bereavement (including how children grieve and how they might be helped to grieve). In addition to the authors' openness and willingness to "practise what they preach" - by bringing in their own experiences and real-life stories where appropriate - encourages the reader to engage more directly with the subject matter: to consider how their own stories about death and bereavement might influence how they talk about it.' - After Life - Reports from the frontline of death 'This book seeks to support teachers of children from age 8 upwards in this sensitive and not always easy task. Of the ten chapters, nine concentrate on providing the reader with factual information pertaining to different aspects of death and dying, to be used as a handy reference guide. The authors run through arguments for discussing death as an ordinary life event, examine medical and biological definitions of death, consider the process of dying from cancer and AIDS, death by accident and suicide, the death penalty, look at what happens to the body after death, explain the functions of people involved with a death and summarise funeral rites and traditions in the main religions, before listing basic psychological models of the grief process in children.Written in a simplified style that according to a chapter-by-chapter age guide in the introduction, could be accessed directly by the children themselves, this book is recommended for teachers looking for reassurement, factual support and creative ideas for integrating death education into the classroom.' - The Compassionate Friends Newsletter 'The authors have produced an extremely useful book providing teachers with ways of facilitating discussion about death. Teachers are increasingly called upon to explain death and dying - September 11th being a good example, when children were subjected to distressing scenes on television on a daily basis. Many children began to ask teachers questions about death and dying that were causing them anxiety. The authors also offer useful strategies for talking about death in the context of different school lessons with guidance given on page 7 about the suitability of the material for each age group. The final chapter, Death across the curriculum, discusses how death can be bought into the curriculum simply and sensibly. A very interesting read, and one that all teachers should find useful.' - The Teacher Teachers are increasingly called upon to discuss and explain death and dying to children in the classroom. This book provides them with methods to facilitate open discussions of death and to find suitable ways of talking with children about what happens when someone they know dies. It explores some of the most sensitive questions surrounding death such as: * the physical processes which occur during and after death * reasons for illness, sudden death or suicide * what actually happens to the dead body * what happens at funerals. The authors also offer useful strategies for talking about death in the context of different school lessons, in order to prepare pupils of all ages. The final chapter on grief and mourning demonstrates how to give newly bereaved children the support they need. This handbook combines factual information with strategies for teachers to use when discussing death with children. Readable and practical, it will be invaluable for teachers required to broach this sensitive issue within the school environment.

Description : Many people are curious about what goes on behind the scenes at a funeral home. Add a live-in family to this scenario, and you'll Step Into Our Lives at the Funeral Home. Shh! Be quiet! There's someone at the door! Don't ever talk about anything you have seen or heard concerning someone's death outside the walls of our home. Mourning families need to know they can trust our integrity and our ability to keep confidentiality. For the author's family, these admonitions were ingrained in the children's minds at an early age. This book gives an insightful view of every facet of the funeral, from the time a death call is received until the funeral is completed. Stories of days in the ambulance business in conjunction with the funeral home are also related. The funeral director's role, the spouse's role, the children's role, and how the children thrived in an atmosphere of death are shared with the reader. How funeral directors cope with stress and how wives cope with their husbands during these times are revealed. Years later, following a tragic death, three people look back and share their stories of moving from despair to recovery. Interspersed through every chapter are stories and vignettes shared by many funeral directors throughout the Midwest, concerning the lifestyle for the family living in the funeral home and true incidents of specific funerals. Some stories are sad. Others are tragic. A few are humorous. Embracing faith, hope, and love is a primary requisite for healing. Intended audience: General readers of all ages, funeral home directors, hospice patients, mortuary students, and people who have had a loved one die by natural means or tragedy.

Description : The comparative analysis of child murderess and dead child traditions in Irish and European folklore is the focus of this study. Drawing extensively from the Irish Folklore Collections housed at the Department of Irish Folklore, University College Dublin and citing a variety of folklore and documentary sources, this study explores Irish and European traditions concerned with the supernatural manifestation of the spirits of women who have murdered children and of the souls of children who have died without baptism. The specific social and historical circumstances in which these traditions developed in Ireland reveals both the uniqueness of the Irish area within the north-west European cultural province and the distinctly religious character of the Irish material.

Description : Over the last few decades, the Tiv culture of death and burial have experienced radical changes due to the confrontation of indigenous religion with western education, modernization and cultural borrowing from Tiv neighbouring ethnic groups and some of the "local communities" are among those that are visited during death and burial ceremonies. This cultural integration infiltrated Tiv culture, customs and traditions, especially death and burial rites. It also influenced the process of religious changes as a point of department from the pre-colonial practices. Today, death and burial ceremonies have become festivities and occasions for the bereaved to display wealth. The material mode of production which is capital-oriented and the desire for material gains have led the Tiv to become exploitative, especially to sons-in-law as regards death and burial rites. It also led to drastic shift in the roles that were performed by male children to female children in modern Tiv society. This made the Tiv to abandon the traditional practices of death for Christian-oriented ones. This research therefore, provides a new metric as supplemental for traditional practices of death.

Description : Death education is presently viewed as an ongoing process throughout the life cycle, with the responsibility for it being shared by home, church, other community agencies, and the schools. Goals for a death education program include the following: to inform children of basic facts concerning the multidimensional aspects of death and dying; to enable individuals to be informed consumers of medical and funeral services; and to improve quality of life by considering personal values and priorities. Death education programs in elementary and secondary schools are not widespread, but they are increasing; college programs proliferated during the 1970's. The content in death education programs ranges from discussion of the death of a pet in kindergarten to study of human death, burial, and bereavement in the upper grades. Death education, by its very nature, lends itself to a multidisciplinary approach. For example, students in the middle schools examine life cycles in nature; the human life cycle; and the biological, social-cultural, economic, and legal aspects of death. Content in high school and college programs is quite similar, with differences primarily in depth of treatment at the college level. Content at the college level covers such areas as suicide and dealing with dying. Death education programs lack a standardized set of concepts, terminology, and guidelines and have no established place in the curriculum. A number of concerns must be dealt with. For example, what teaching techniques and materials are appropriate for death education? Research in implementing death education into schools and college programs is needed. (A bibliography is included which lists print materials and audiovisual materials on the topic of death.) (Author/NE)

Description : Little is known about the early childhood of Jesus Christ. But in the decades after his death, stories began circulating about his origins. One collection of such tales was the so-called Infancy Gospel of Thomas, known in antiquity as the Paidika or “Childhood Deeds” of Jesus. In it, Jesus not only performs miracles while at play (such as turning clay birds into live sparrows) but also gets enmeshed in a series of interpersonal conflicts and curses to death children and teachers who rub him the wrong way. How would early readers have made sense of this young Jesus? In this highly innovative book, Stephen Davis draws on current theories about how human communities construe the past to answer this question. He explores how ancient readers would have used texts, images, places, and other key reference points from their own social world to understand the Christ child’s curious actions. He then shows how the figure of a young Jesus was later picked up and exploited in the context of medieval Jewish-Christian and Christian-Muslim encounters. Challenging many scholarly assumptions, Davis adds a crucial dimension to the story of how Christian history was created.
