    Cremation actually stems back to Roman and Greek times, however it faded away with the advent of Christianity. It started up again in the 1880s, and the Pope lifted the ban on cremation among Roman Catholics in 1963.

    Cremation dates back to 20,000 years ago with the cremation of the Mungo Lady at Mungo Lake, Australia.  The site was managed by the Australian government, but was repatriated to the Aboriginal people back in 1992.
