Early understandings of soil types must have been crucial when burial practices were such an integral part of society. In the early prehistoric era, there is a notable change in burial attitudes, particularly towards inhumation. Burial, along with the interment of grave goods, replaced cremation, and this inhumation then progresses from ‘communal’ chambered tombs, such as West Kennet Long Barrow in Wiltshire, into more nucleated burials in much smaller barrows as the transition from the Neolithic into the Bronze Age takes place.
In The Buried Soul, Timothy Taylor discusses the beliefs attributed to early burial rites, and in particular the idea that early man at some point recognized the separation of the soul and body. After death, therefore, the soul may attempt to reassert itself with its worldly body and retrieve its ‘possession’, but only while the ﬂesh remained on the body. After the ﬂesh no longer remained, the soul would have no choice but to move on to the afterlife (as with later beliefs noted in Russia and Romania, for example).
