Era of the Living Dead: Memory, Sacrifice & the "Royal" Tombs

Dr. Glenn Schwartz is the Whiting Professor of Archaeology and Director of Undergraduate Archaeology at Johns Hopkins University.

Excavations at Tell Umm el-Marra in western Syria have exposed a large funerary complex of tombs of local rulers of Syria's first urban civilization, circa[masked] BCE. The skeletons and artifacts found in the tombs allow us to reconstruct funerary practices and beliefs. Dr. Schwartz will discuss extraordinary sequence of ritual behaviors and explore how they shed light on political and religious changes in the history of Syria's first urban civilization.
