How to Burial on the Stone Age

How to Burial on the Stone Age


Almost every culture is an important presumption and burial. This also applies to the stone-age society living in Ireland.


A finding published in the International Bioarchaeology journal revised the practice of burial at that time.


Led by Dr Jonny Geber of the Autonomous Department at the University of Otago, New Zealand, the study meganalisis the remains of non-cremated bones from seven graves at the Passage Tomb Complex, a tomb complex located in Carrowkeel, County Sligo, northwest of Ireland.


This site is one of the most famous Neolithic ritual landscapes in Europe, rarely happens by the wider community.


The researchers found bones from 40 people who lived in the Stone Age and had mutilated."We found signs of injuries caused by stone tools in the tendons and ligaments of the major joints, such as the shoulders, elbows, hips and ankles," said Dr Geber as elected from a press release.


According to Dr Geber, funeral rituals performed by the Carrowkeel community are very complex and depend on the "deconstruction" of the body.


"In this ceremony, it is clear that the body is 'processed' by his family and his community in various ways, including cremation and beheading, perhaps this way is intended to help the souls of the dead reach the next stage of life," explained Dr. Geber.


Looking at this evidence, the researchers also argue that the Carrowkeel complex is an important place for the diluted neolithic community at that time, where they interact and connect with the ancestors
