"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die…" - Solomon. From earliest times, as far back as man's recorded history and beyond, human beings have been vitally concerned about death and a possible hereafter. Archaeological discoveries reveal that Neanderthal man must have pondered the nether world and a possible life after death. He dug burial pits for his dead. He also provided his deceased with tools, weapons and food - undoubtedly an attempt to give the departed, or the departed's soul, necessities for an imagined afterlife. But Neanderthal's burials were simple compared to burials of later ancients. Burial extravaganzas unsurpassed in scope and magnitude are recorded in the histories of some of the world's past great civilizations. Enormous treasures of gold and jeweled objects, riches of all kinds, sometimes servants, horses, wagons and even ships, were often entombed with kings and queens to help them continue a lavishly high standard of living in a fancied afterlife continued by their souls.
