This volume investigates the archaeology of death and commemoration through thematically linked case studies drawn from the Classical world. These investigations stress the processes of burial and commemoration as inherently social and designed for an audience, and they explore the meaning and importance attached to preserving memory. While previous investigations of Greek and Roman death and burial have tended to concentrate on period- or regionally-specific sets of data, this volume instead focuses on a series of topical connections that highlight important facets of death and commemoration significant to the larger Classical world. Living through the dead investigates the subject of death and commemoration from a diverse set of archaeologically informed approaches, including visual reception, detailed analysis of excavated remains, landscape, and post-classical reflections and draws on artefactual, documentary and pictorial evidence. The nine papers present recent research by some of the leading voices on the subject, as well as some fresh perspectives. Case studies come from Thermopylae, the Bosporan kingdom, Athens, Republican Rome, Pompeii and Egypt. As a collected volume, they provide thematically linked investigations of key issues in ritual, memory and (self)presentation associated with death and burial in the Classical period. As such, this volume will be of particular interest to postgraduate students and academics with specialist interests in the archaeology of the Classical world and also more broadly, as a source of comparative material, to people working on issues related to the archaeology of death and commemoration.

Chris Grosso invites us to sit in on conversations with beloved luminaries and bestselling authors such as Ram Dass, Lissa Rankin, Noah Levine, Gabor Mate, and Sharon Salzberg to discover why people return to self-defeating behaviors—drugs, alcohol, unhealthy eating, sex, media—and how they can recover, heal, and thrive. In his recovery from drugs and alcohol, Chris Grosso has stumbled, staggered, and started all over again. In an effort to understand why he relapses, and why many of us return to the myriad of other self-defeating behaviors despite our better judgment, he went to bestselling authors, spiritual teachers, psychologists, doctors, and more, and asked them why we tend to repeat mistakes in our lives, even when we know these actions will harm us and the ones we love. In Dead Set on Living, Chris shares these intimate conversations and the practices that have taught him to be more loving, compassionate, and forgiving with himself as well as new meditation and healing techniques he learned through his journey. Unabashedly honest and inspiring, Dead Set on Living is essential reading for anyone seeking a path towards triumph over adversity, understanding the human condition, and rebuilding relationships after promises have been broken.

“Extraordinarily tender and finely wrought.” — Eliza Griswold, author of The Tenth Parallel “It’s long been assumed of the region where my grandmother was born…that at some point each year the dead will come home,” Inara Verzemnieks writes in this exquisite story of war, exile, and reconnection. Her grandmother’s stories recalled one true home: the family farm left behind in Latvia, where, during WWII, her grandmother Livija and her grandmother’s sister, Ausma, were separated. They would not see each other again for more than 50 years. Raised by her grandparents in Washington State, Inara grew up among expatriates, scattering smuggled Latvian sand over the coffins of the dead, singing folk songs about a land she had never visited. When Inara discovers the scarf Livija wore when she left home, in a box of her grandmother’s belongings, this tangible remnant of the past points the way back to the remote village where her family broke apart. There it is said the suspend their exile once a year for a pilgrimage through forests and fields to the homes they left behind. Coming to know Ausma and the trauma of her exile to Siberia under Stalin, Inara pieces together Livija’s survival through years as a refugee. Weaving these two parts of the family story together in spellbinding, lyrical prose, she gives us a profound and cathartic account of loss, survival, resilience, and love.

When humankind faces what it perceives as a threat to its very existence, a macabre thing happens in art, literature, and culture: corpses begin to stand up and walk around. The dead walked in the fourteenth century, when the Black Death and other catastrophes roiled Europe. They walked in images from World War I, when a generation died horribly in the trenches. They walked in art inspired by the Holocaust and by the atomic attacks on Japan. Now, in the early twenty-first century, the dead walk in stories of the zombie apocalypse, some of the most ubiquitous narratives of post-9/11 Western culture. Zombies appear in popular movies and television shows, comics and graphic novels, fiction, games, art, and in material culture including pinball machines, zombie runs, and lottery tickets. The zombie apocalypse, Greg Garrett shows us, has become an archetypal narrative for the contemporary world, in part because zombies can stand in for any of a variety of global threats, from terrorism to Ebola, from economic uncertainty to ecological destruction. But this zombie narrative also brings us emotional and spiritual comfort. These apocalyptic stories, in which the world has been turned upside down and protagonists face the prospect of an imminent and grisly death, can also offer us wisdom about living in a community, present us with real-world ethical solutions, and invite us into conversation about the value and costs of survival. We may indeed be living with the living dead these days, but through the stories we consume and the games we play, we are paradoxically learning what it means to be fully alive.

The Zone of Danger��(P), is a heavy metal air pollution, climate change, and environmental law book. The subject matter is toxic mercury amalgam vapor, ecology, and environmentalism. The Zone of Danger��(P), tells the saga of the damage done to the environment, and in particular the "Immediate Danger To Human Life and Health, "IDLH", by the burning of the toxic mercury amalgam in dental fillings, which is against the law in almost every state, particularly when those dental fillings are in the teeth of the deceased, during the estimated 1.5 million cremations a year, which release toxic mercury amalgam vapor, through the scrubberless stacks, of the estimated 2000 crematorium, in the U.S., owned, and operated, by the estimated $15 Billion Dollar a year "Death Enterprise", directly into the environment, to drift for thousands of miles from the U.S. to the E.U., to stay for an estimated 444 years in the environment, and in the person for an estimated 36 years. Toxic mercury amalgam vapor is a highly toxic, persistent, bioaccumulative, neurotoxin, which can cause, " delayed fetal development, Autism, ADHD, MS, ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Arthritis, fibromyalgia, dementia, mental illness, insomnia, cancers, organ failure, etc.", which can lead to death. Dean Fisher, Director of the University of California, Donated Bodies Program, and a board member of CANA, stated that, when you burn a body, with toxic mercury amalgam in dental fillings, which is against the law in almost every state, the toxic mercury amalgam vaporizes, and escapes directly, into the atmosphere, as toxic mercury amalgam vapor, through the scrubberless stacks of crematorium, to drift for thousands of miles, from the U.S. to the E.U., to remain for an estimated 444 years in the environment, and an estimated 36 years in the person. The respected medical journal, The Lancet Commission on Pollution and Heath, in their October 17, 2017 issue, attempted to pull together W.H.O. data, on air pollution, and stated, for the first time, that the neurological damage from heavy metal air pollution like, mercury amalgam vapor, kills more people than all the wars, famine, illnesses, pestilence, etc., an estimated, 12.5 million people a year, in the U.S., costing an estimated $4.6 trillion in losses a year, an estimated 6.2% of the worldwide GDP. Let's look at our future, our children. Toxic mercury amalgam vapor, sits in the central nervous system, and damages kid's brains. The most vulnerable of these children, are the one's in poverty, and therefore the most affected, because most of them are housed, in, or near, the estimated 2000 crematorium, located in, or near the small, or large, inner cities, across the U.S., such as Syracuse, New York.
