The funerary rituals of ancient and medieval societies are full of small gestures that cannot go unnoticed. In recent years, many researchers dedicated to the archeology of death have focused their attention on the trace of these behaviors, analyzing in detail many of the materials found in the burials. Coins, jewellery, ceramics, bones, food and flowers are some of the objects that were frequently used to bid farewell to the deceased. The detailed analysis of these materials in large funerary contexts demonstrates that their choice and placement in tombs was rich in meanings that varied according to eras, regions and communities. This volume reflects precisely on these last aspects, studying in detail the choice, placement and ideological value of small objects traditionally associated with outdated concepts. It is for this reason that a large part of the works in this volume are dedicated to the analysis of coins in tombs, since it is an object used with a certain frequency in the funerary rites of various cultures. Alongside these numismatic studies, other contributions are dedicated to the examination, according to updated approaches, of the elements of decoration and personal consumption in funerary contexts, thus providing new data that allow us to reconstruct and rethink with greater precision the conceptions of death in ancient times and medieval.
