Startling surprise inside 1,000-year-old German sarcophagus

Startling surprise inside 1,000-year-old German sarcophagus After a 1,000-year slumber, it was time for a peek. On Tuesday, archaeologists in Mainz, Germany, exhumed a millennium-old sarcophagus holding the decomposed remains of a possible archbishop who died in the 11th century, according to CNN.

"It's kind of like 'how long's a piece of string'. It's what's personal to people," Ms Hassan said.

"We've had someone who was buried in their underwear and wrapped in their favourite blanket they used to sit in, with their TV remote control.

"That was how this guy was remembered and that's how he was buried.

"We had a guy who was a chess player. They put his chess set in with him."

Hobbies and life passions lend for the biggest inspiration for what people 'take into the afterlife'.

"Guitars, fishing rods and reels, and all their fishing tackle have been either cremated or buried with people," Ms Hassan said.

"Another one for men that's really popular is their favourite sporting jersey draped over the casket in place of flowers."

The undying loyalty of pets

For many, the most meaningful thing they will share their casket with is a beloved pet.

In Western society it is something that would not have been considered fifty years ago, but now it is a more popular request.

"We've buried or cremated animals with people," Ms Hassan said.

"We've got a dog here at the moment that died and has been cremated, so we've got the dog's ashes and he is to go in with his owner when he eventually passes away."

There have even been cases where the decision is made for a pet to be euthanised so that their soul can depart alongside their human companion.

"We've had an occasion where a woman died after a long illness and her cat was quite elderly as well, and really mourned for her basically after she died, so the family made the decision to have the cat put to sleep and the cat was placed in with her," Ms Hassan said.

What's legal?

Despite the laws surrounding coffin material and requirements being quite clear, Ms Hassan said there was little red tape in Australia around what people could be buried with.

Target expands same-day shipping option, marking the latest move in the delivery wars with Walmart and Amazon

Target expands same-day shipping option, marking the latest move in the delivery wars with Walmart and Amazon Target is bringing its same-day delivery option to the masses, marking the latest move in an ongoing and heated battle over delivery involving the big-box retailer, Walmart and Amazon. Target announced Thursday that shoppers in 47 states across the country will now be able to get items from online orders delivered same day by paying a flat fee of $9.99 per order. It's leveraging Shipt, a membership-based, same-day delivery platform it acquired for $550 million in 2017, to do this. Up until now, Target shoppers have been able to get orders delivered on the same day by being a Shipt member, which costs $99 per year.

Items You Can Place in a Casket. Most families choose to include items that were special to their loved Often sports enthusiasts are buried with memorabilia, anything from a hockey stick, a baseball bat As with all funeral arrangements, taking into the account the wishes of the deceased must be

She said cremations were a slightly different story.

"With cremation there is a bit of a limitation. We prefer no glass to be in there because of the way glass melts at high temperature. And anything with a battery," Ms Hassan said.

"Obviously batteries and cremators and high temperatures are not compatible. So we would normally remove the batteries before the cremation takes place."

"But other than that people are more than welcome, usually, to place anything."

Coffin creativity

Decorating a casket has also now become an intrinsic part of sending-off a loved one.

From customised wraps, photos and written messages, to a limitless array of paraphernalia, coffin creativity has taken on a life of its own.

"We've seen some spectacular decorations on a coffin. We've got a beautiful one in our back shed at the moment. It's been personally hand painted by a lady's daughter who's an artist," Ms Hassan said.

"We just did one yesterday where the family took the coffin — just a very basic white coffin — and decorated it with beautiful photos of the lady's cats and orchids.

Does this mean that You Can 't Take It With You is a comical attack on capitalism? Certainly not. For others, happiness is playing the xylophone off-key or wildly dancing a unique ballet. Grandpa Vanderhof teaches us that there are many pathways to happiness.

Pharaohs might be buried with their favourite perfumes and oils, made from the most expensive materials. Did the Pharaoh Tutankhamun love board games? Well he was buried with an ivory travelling set of the game Senet. Perhaps they didn’t want him to be bored on the journey.

"During the service, the family came up and wrote handwritten notes all over the coffin for her before her committal."

More families are choosing to add colour and character to their loved one's coffin during the funeral service, rather than just beforehand.

"Lots of people like their fishing here so we often buy the rubber fishing lures — obviously without the hook attached — and fill up a basket of fishing lures [which] people scatter on the coffin," Ms Hassan said.

"For musicians we can get bags of guitar picks, which is another popular one."

Some personalised items which are scattered on the coffin are even used as an ice breaker to give mourners a much-needed laugh.

"We've had builders where we've scattered nails — another nail in the coffin, or a couple hundred or so!" Ms Hassan said.

"Mick Pope, who was the instigator of the beach horse races [in Mackay], had his whole casket covered in the beach horse races' logos, and photos of that.

"So again, it can be very personal to the person and it really just takes that personal touch to another level."

A 'proud' send-off

In 2016, Mackay lost the much-loved Mr Pope suddenly following a heart attack.

Mr Pope's partner Chris Evangelou said it took her some time to work out exactly how to personalise his coffin.

"If somebody's unwell and you plan it, it's different. But all of a sudden, if you haven't talked about those things, you have to make decisions based on what is right for all of you people left behind," Ms Evangelou said.

"And, you want to give respect to the person who has just passed.

"I was there when everybody walked in past it [the coffin]. I don't think they quite knew what to think.

"It had all his favourite things on — his beach horse races things, there was a picture of his and my surfboards … and it was colourful.

"Some people burst into tears. Some people cried and then laughed. And I just think it broke the ice for people who were feeling so sad.

"They just realised 'let's walk into the church and celebrate this colourful character'. I think it was a perfect way for people to walk in."

Modern funerals more connected

Laying personal items and gifts on or inside a coffin may not be a new ritual, but the level of creativity seen by funeral directors today is unprecedented.

Ms Hassan said she hoped the creativity would continue to grow to help bring more light and celebration to what could otherwise be a sombre day.

"I think it makes people more involved with the service, it's more connected," she said.

"Our indigenous cultures and our islander cultures are very much more in touch with death and dying and that end-of-life care than Western society is.

"Having these personal items and the coffin personalised to that person's life just gives that little bit more connection to the service, and to the person themselves, rather than it just being something you attend."
