Research: The Greek Way of Death by Robert Garland

This is the foundational text of my research. While it does not, and indeed cannot, speak to Orphic matters, it does give an excellent outline of the most usual ceremonies of laying out, funeral, procession, disposition, and funeral feast. My copy is filled with bookmarks, dog-ears, and underlinings. I have copious notes just from this one book. It helped shape my outline for the book as well as the individual rituals.
