The new book by Sunday Times bestselling author of Ancestors and Buried – the final instalment in Professor Alice Roberts’ acclaimed trilogy.

In her previous two bestsellers, Professor Alice Roberts has powerfully and evocatively revived people of the past through examining their burial rites, bringing a fresh perspective on how they lived. In Crypt, Professor Roberts tells the story of modern Britain from 1066 to the present day – by exploring changing methods of honouring the dead.

Beautifully written, vividly drawn, and expertly researched, this is a brilliant and unexpected portrait of modern Britain.
