What can we learn from the Coffin Roads?
We are delighted that Ian Bradley is joining us to share the extraordinary traditions around the coffin roads in the Highlands and islands of Scotland – ancient tracks along which bodies were carried on their way to remote graveyards.
Professor Bradley is the author of The Coffin Roads:Journeys to the West, the second in a trilogy of books on aspects of death and the afterlife.
Can these traditions help us to recapture the patterns of dealing with death which we have lost in our times? Is there good reason to make the transition from life to death more gradual and to mark it with rituals which can help the expression of grief and give it meaning and context? Join us to discuss.
