Death and burial in the past: "Of corpse bitters, revenants and death crowns" - a tour with the Black Widow.

This tour focuses on the customs, traditions and superstitions of our ancestors. How did our ancestors deal with the topics of dying, death and mourning? What rituals were there? Do you know why you should never call a dying person by name or what the dove has to do with death? Who or what are mortuary mourners? What are death crowns? And why were the deceased tied up or peas placed in their coffin? Many of these questions are answered and rounded off with exciting stories.
