Greek death traditions, rituals & beliefs

Ancient Greek beliefs about life, death, and the afterlife are still seen in modern culture. In Ancient Greece, death was not the end of human life. Instead, the soul continued in the afterlife, under the care of the Gods. Though these beliefs were practiced thousands of years ago, we can still see Greek influence in our traditions around death today.
