    During an African burial, an animal would usually be sacrafaced. They believed that it was a respectful thing to do and that it served as food on their long journey to the heavens. Most of the time they would give sacraface an ox, if the person was the last living in their family the ox would help take them to the afterlife. Africans were also buried with their personal possessions. Africans could only refere to some one as dead if they were the last one in their family to die.

    Roman:
    The Romans did both cremations and burials. During a cremating ceremony, not only did they cremate the body, but they burned the dead's personal possessions as well. The ashes were put into a container and then burried in a cemetary. If a person was to poor to afford a proper cremation, their family would cremate them at their own homes and keep the ashes. Although if one was going to have a burial and were to poor to have a funeral, their friends and family would put their money together for their friend.
    African:
    During an African burial, an animal would usually be sacrafaced. They believed that it was a respectful thing to do and that it served as food on their long journey to the heavens. Most of the time they would give sacraface an ox, if the person was the last living in their family the ox would help take them to the afterlife.
