Fear

Volume X, Number 3 | summer 2017

Miscellany

Residents of North Yorkshire from the eleventh to fourteenth centuries were so afraid of the dead rising to attack the living that they would dismember, decapitate, burn, and otherwise mutilate corpses before burying them. The process was generally undertaken shortly after death, when the bones were still soft.

Who lives in fear will never be a free man.

- Horace, 19 BC
