Abstract

This essay is about the anthropology of the dead body in deep time and about its work in particular places at particular times. I offer an exemplary case of how anthropological claims are translated into the work of the dead in ways that have little to do with, or are even contrary to, specific beliefs about status of the body, the soul, and afterlife and a great deal to do with the kind of anthropological claims I have been making.
