Welcome to Death - the last taboo

The Australian Museum Online has a web site devoted to Death
Throughout the world, death and the rituals that surround it are steeped in taboos. Death is celebrated, embraced and feared. Around death and the dead, cultures put in place diverse restrictions and practices associated with clothing, food and ritual. This website explores what happens to us when we die and the different ways we deal with death.
It includes a Flash Interactive Autopsy (137 kb)
