Title: Death and Dying in the Neolithic Near East
Authors: Karina Croucher

 Drawing on recent excavations and earlier archive and published fieldwork, Croucher provides an overview and introduction to the period, presenting new interpretations of the archaeological evidence and in-depth analyses of case studies.
