Grave Goods – Packing for the Awfully Big Adventure.

Grave Goods“To die would be an awfully big adventure.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan.

Grave Goods is a series of interviews in which well known historians, archaeologists, and generally Interesting Types discuss the possessions they would like to accompany them on the Awfully Big Adventure.

Aside from the complimentary pot of hazelnuts that we provide, the categories to choose from are:

Tools of the Trade – a tool/implement without which you’d be lost, whether it’s a pen, trowel, notepad, bottle-opener or scanning electron microscope.

Food for the Journey – a favourite portable snack, or a portion of something from your funeral feast.

Memento Vivere – a memento of a companion/event to bring you cheer (can be an image).

Ex Libris – the book or text you are least likely to tire of reading.

Lucky Deposition – a bonus selection chosen by the guest – can include transport.

A Message from Beyond the Grave – an entirely discretionary option – leave a note for a future generation to find.
