Recorded on 10/27/19 at the University of New Hampshire. Lee Webster is a noted author and national leader in the field of home funerals and green burials. She speaks around the country on a range of topics from conservation cemeteries to caring for our own dead. This lecture covers the fascinating history of funerals in America from the old tradition of home funerals and burials to the rise of embalming and the creation of the funeral profession, and then the return to natural burial occurring today.
