Fire-burial among our Germanic forefathers : a record of the poetry and history of Teutonic cremation:

When the question of Cremation is illustrated by Historical references, we always hear much of the Indians of old, of the Phoenikians, of the Greeks, the Romans; but scarcely ever — at least in this country — do we see any mention made of our own Germanic fore- fathers. Yet those who combine an ardent zeal for progress with a faculty of musing over the ways of the past, might not be sorry to find from the records of history, as well as from poetical traditions, that with the Teutonic race also cremation was once the ruling custom.
