Abstract

Dr. Elizabeth Baughan, Associate Professor of Classics and Archaeology, discusses her new book, Couched in Death: Klinai and Identity in Anatolia and Beyond, published recently by the University of Wisconsin Press.

Bringing a diverse body of understudied and unpublished material together for the first time, she investigates the origins and cultural significance of burials on couches and charts their development and distribution throughout Anatolia.
