Stool Graves and Corpses - Burial Customs of our Ancestors

Kind of Event
Guided Tour

Burials are particularly significant findings for archaeologists. Although it may sound contradictory at first, graves, but also the deceased themselves, provide experts with a great deal of information about life long ago.

Not only beliefs and the handling of death based on them are reflected in the burials. Thanks to grave examinations, we also find out whether cemeteries were established near settlements, what clothes and jewelry were given to the deceased, how much work went into creating a grave and much more.

Anthropological research can also reveal how old the deceased were and what diseases they suffered from during their lifetime.

Let's take a look into the realm of the deceased on a special tour of the permanent exhibition of the Brandenburg State Archaeological Museum.
