According to archaeology or historical accounts, the Viking Funeral is known for its practice of sending non-functional goods to afterlife along with the body of the deceased person. The traditions of Viking funeral often included laying down the body along with grave goods on a boat or a stone ship, which was either usually buried under stones and soil or are sometimes set on fire. The grave goods sent along with the body often depended upon the social position of the deceased person. For example, while tradesmen were buried with tools, women were buried with jewelry and household items. This proves the Vikings believed in the afterlife.
