    Druid/Anglo Saxon Funerary Practices- A Question

    What do people know about druidic funerary practices. What would you burn/bury with a body? In this instance some sage & sweetgrass (because he liked powwows) acorns and possibly something else. I need to know by tomorrow noon. I am primarily looking for information from practicing druids not texts. All information is useful. Thank you for your help.

    The cards he played with my mom, a wooden pipe, some homemade brownbread, acorns and an apple are what we are planning on.

    What it historically accurate and what is legal for cremation in the USA are not the same. Grave goods are not allowed if they include metal, alcohol or meat/animal products.

    He went for a re constructionist Celtic whereas I took after my mothers people more.

    He is having some personally significant items go with him as well as some acorns and an apple.

    I'm afraid that this is only from books as by tonight when I go to the Pagan moot here in Aberdeen and could ask a practicing druid it will be too late but it seems that games, and tools relating to the persons occupation were often added to graves, obviously evidence of food is not found, but knowing that many other cultures do so I would guess that it would be there.

    the self must also die;
    but glory never dies,
    For the one who is able to achieve it.
