Weekend visit to Bath just gone, going through the photos I took and this is the one that sticks out.
According to my “notes” cremation was the normal funeral rite until the 3rd century AD when burial became popular.
The head in the photo is from a man aged approx 45 years old reconstructed from the remains seen directly below. Handsome chap!
Lurking under the San Francisco Monastery in Lima, Peru is one of the finest collections of skulls and bones to be found!
Originally constructed in 1546, it is one of the oldest churches in South America. It also served as the first official Catholic cemetery in Lima, at a time when the dead were laid to rest in catacombs beneath the church. The process for the bodies brought down to the catacombs was roughly to lie the fresh bodies in troughs of lime – to isolate the bones and then move the bones to larger storage areas – ordered on size.
It’s a great place to visit – with a tour guide and no photos allowed (something I choose to disregard!). There is much that still hasn’t been excavated, but what is there is well worth a visit.
