But now is gaining momentum in a broader oriented barrow project (Bourgeois and Fontijn 2007). It is obvious now that–like settlement research–burial analysis too has traditionally assumed a too modern view on the meanings of treatment of death and the dead. A more holistic perspective is needed which brings to the fore the cosmological aspects of burial ritual (cf. Artelius and Svanberg 2005, 8) and its meaning as both the end and the beginning of life (cf. Bloch and Parry 1989, 8). The notion of the cyclical character of life brings together the living and the dead, settlement and cemetery, but also brings depositional practices into the analysis.
