Hospitality for the dead?

    Abstract

    Andrew MacLaren and Nikki Gillies ask whether the ancient Egyptian
    cult of care for the dead was a form of hospitality. In a fascinating
    analysis of the archaeological research, it sounds as if they were
    considerably better looked after than in some contemporary hotels.
