Burial and burial rituals
Throughout history people at Ceavccageađge/Mortensnes have buried their dead in many different ways.
One of the most common grave types at Ceavccageađge/Mortensnes, which is connected to the Sami pre-Christian culture, was the scree grave where the dead was laid in a chamber built into the scree, into a crevice or a cave. At Ceavccageađge/Mortensnes we find the largest and most investigated scree burial site we know of.
Behind the burial ritual in scree and mountain crevice there may be an idea of a "road" to the home of the dead. Both in talus and mountain crevice the earth opens up and grants easier access to Jábmiidáibmu, the realm of the dead.
