    The part of this congress given over to the archaeology of human burial is meant to be interdisciplinary and diachronic (from a certain point of view, particularly concerning the religious attitudes to the dead, the Middle Ages can been stretched to cover the period from late Antiquity to the First World War, this last event marking a major rupture with previous practices and attitude) and hope to answer the following question: What is the historical meaning behind these burial sites?
