Dr Stan Serafin from Central Queensland University
The Aztecs practised complex and diverse treatments of the dead, such as wrapping in bundles, interment under residences and in cemeteries, and cremation. Anthropologist Stan Serafin discusses these funerary methods and their relationship to Aztec concepts of the soul and afterlife. Was cremation reserved only for the ruling class? Join Stan as he contrasts evidence gleaned from Aztec codices and Spanish colonial documents with recent archaeological excavations.
